Grinding Away

My solid-cast salmon is still IN-PROGRESS... I set up my very highly technical and advanced grinding system, and did my best to polish and shape the glass, getting ready for the next step.

Here is the fish post-grinding, waiting for plaster and silica to arrive so that I can re-fire this piece, in hopes of 'healing' the cracks from the first firing. Whne all the material arrives, it will be at least a week in the kiln, so it's still a long ways to wait and many days of labour and effort before I even see whether anything even works out. Sort of exciting.
Don't ask me why this second image is so big. I don't know.
