I screwed up with a sagger-firing of this piece. I wanted copper carbonate to became greenish black. Instead it turned bright brown. Only the solution was to make the sculpture darker with acrylic paint. The colors became too busy for my liking, but I think it still managed to capture the father's pride.
Sagger firing brings out unpredictable outcomes. That makes the technique fascinating and frustrating at the same time. With experiments, I want to make the unpredictable somewhat predictable. There are still lots to learn....
