ok guys, I need your thoughts. I had this really THICK 99.9% silver lying around and some extra Raku soooooooo, here is the result. I am not sure if it floats my boat or not - sometimes I look at it and like it - it reminds me of a giant sea creature with it's mouth open revealing a huge tongue getting ready to eat something and at other times I think it looks like crap - sure wish I'da done better with melting those big globs of silver...... the silver kept wanting to float to the surface of my marble so I deeply encased it. Sooooooooo, what are your thoughts?????

It's so hypnotic! I like the dreamy tendrils, and the silver looks like splashing water. And you're right about that tongue! I'm amazed. Thanks for sharing, and with so many pics, too.

Rich,
I think it's really cool! A lot of dimension and motion.

I love it Rich. Agree with previous comments about floating tendrils, splashing water and the dimension and motion. It is also a bit scary - I can see a giant sea creature's mouth that reminds me of an underwater serpent - shudder!!shudder!!!!
