I started doing clay faces in my college years, got back into them again about ten years ago till the kiln I had access to was shut down. I'd love to find another kiln to use, darn things are expensive to buy and run.

All these are either redware or whiteware low fire clay. The first four are stained and waxed, the reddish brown one is natural (the kiln went through an awesome oxygen "reduction" and produced a wonderful color, this stuff usually comes out brick red or near pink. The last one is whiteware that is painted. I have made and sold so many through the years before I got a digital camera. :(
