They are great fun, and I agree on the colours. I can play around with glazing techniques.

Yes they are too big to leave them solid clay.
The black one is about 35 cm (14 inches) tall.

Yes I have my own "oven" which is called a kiln.
I am a professional ceramic artist so a kiln is an essential piece of equipment.

They're fun - both for the positions and colours.
They're a challenge technically too because when the clay is soft it won't stay in shape but tends to slump under its own weight.

The problem with lizard comissions is that their legs are relatively fragile making them difficult to send by post. I don't know where you are but I'm in France.
