The customer who ordered the hippo was very very happy and picked it up today. I still have the second one (the one on the right or Hippo Candy Bowl #2), but I have a few people interested in it as well.
They are pretty darn cute.

Once the hippo was a bit dry, I started underglazing it with Western brand underglazes. I'll have to take a photo of the interior of his mouth next time so you can see the uvula. Now, I didn't make a hole between the head and the body just in case a stray jelly bean slipped through the hole. You'd never be able to get it out!
I'm currently bisque firing this hippo. He and his twin will be cone 5 clear glazed over the weekend. I can't wait to see them when they're completely done!
