Harpies

I love harpies. They’re troublesome creatures sent to annoy. There’s a splendid pot showing three of them snatching food from Phineas, who’s been struck blind as punishment for some infraction. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the same vengeful god has sent three harpies to steal his food every time he goes to take a bite.

The two ladies below are from that pot. I’m not happy with the painting. I think I like the squeeze bottles of underglaze better although I tried the ol’ brush this time. I do like the ornamentation at the top. We’ll see what comes about in the final firing
