Work in Progress for NEOS

Having been working on the Doric Delft and other, smaller wares, I decided that I needed to get into making my larger work for NEOS.  I have decided on continuing the Scottish theme with these figures.  Here is what I have done so far:
Laying out clay slabs to stiffen
Cutting out bases of feet
Forming shoes using coils and slabs
Smoothing; first with a metal kidney and then with a rubber kidney
Patterns on the Ghillie Brogues
Ready to be loosely wrapped and left overnight to become leather hard
