Lil Animal box type art

This is part of a series of ceramic boxes I am creating. The bases on these four were created with extruded low temperature clay. I hand sculpted the figures and then attached them to the lids via score and slip method. I hand painted the figures with underglazes and then finished them off with an application of a clear glaze. The remaining other pieces I am working on are larger in scale and I will post them as soon as they are done. These range in size from 5" to 7" inches.
Just wanted to share a bit of the technical process.

I'm in agreement with Peach - I love your style. The walrus is my favorite.
