Toad Castle

This past weekend I decided to make a toad castle. I actually threw this on the wheel in two pieces, basically a cylinder and the cone shaped roof.  I rolled out a piece of clay and attached it to the roof and then cut the stones out with an exacto knife.
Once the castle pieces were thrown on the wheel I did the remainder of the work outside. It was sunny with a slight breeze which caused the clay to dry a lot faster than I had expected. I had originally planned on adding a turret off to the side but the clay became to dry to do that. Next time.
