Merry go round

The month has passed super quick and every last friday of the month, I jump on the 'Merry go round'. What is the Merry go round exactly? Each month, a group of craftswomen from around the world join together and give their reponses to the same question/challenge.
This month we were challenged to take a photograph of something and create something inspired by it. For those among you with sensitive souls, I have to warm you 'cause what I'm showing is not a pretty sight...

Regular blogreaders know that I have been on a hunt for fish lately. I have been looking far and near for plastic play fish, lures, moulds,... but have not had much succes.
Therefor, a real fish is in order!
It's not the head that's important...
It's the tail that I need!
So, I moulded half of it...
And then pressed porcelain clay in it.
I hope that Anna, my collaboration partner,
will be able to use it in her creations...

I must admit that I had a different picture at first but the end result didn't work out the way I wanted. Hopefully I can still show that sometime later...

Want to see what other merriers made being inspired by a picture of something?
Hop over to their blogs to see! :)
