A caryatid is a figure, generally a clothed female, found on greek
architecture standing as a support for a roof or tympaneum( the word may

We didn't take anything home from the workshop except memories and

I do wish my photo sender were up, because you could see the finished
creature with its red terrasigillata tongue hanging out.. I don't know if
it ever got fired...Things that were large simply don't dry out in 2
weeks time ..and in any case,sitting on the airplane with a 4ft sculpture
on my lap?
