Really enjoyed repairing this Tang Horse from the 8th Century AD.
The legs, hand, tail, foot of cheetah and the base were modelled in clay then cast in plaster before attaching.
Below the horse is a copy of a 3rd century BC Greek Skyphos ( drinking cup) made for a client . The clay was a white earthenware coated in red iron oxide slip with a small addition of manganese oxide. The last picture is the finished pot next the original.
