Finished mermaid

And here she is, mortared into place - looking a bit raw at moment but she will weather

She was fired in two halves and mortared together and then mortared in place - I am disappointed with the colour of the mortar being so obtrusive but I hope it will soften in time. I made a recess in her lap and a drainage hole as I constructed her so that she could act as a planter, so I have added ivy to soften the overall effect. 

An earlier mermaid has weathered well and has a living "foam" of ivy to hide her joins!
