Clay Tardigrade Sculpture | Star Trek Discovery

Today I share something a bit different that I made recently!
                            
Ripper Tardigrade Sculpture by Sam Lewis AKA The Cripple Crafter | Star Trek Discovery
     
More photos of the finished sculpture towards the end of this blog post.
               
Any fans of Star Trek, in particular the new show, Discovery, will hopefully recognise my sculpture!

The process was long, but so so enjoyable. I'll definitely pick up clay again for another project.  I took a few "during" photos for those interested.
