Three new birds

Here are some new birdy tiles I've been working on. These tiles were bisque fired and then I drew on them with a special pencil that won't burn off in the kiln. I covered them with glaze right after I photographed them here and they are in the kiln firing as I type this. So hopefully I'll have the finished birds to show you very soon.
The one in the center has a yellow discoloration from the water I washed it with. I'm not really sure why this happens to only some of them but it will burn off when it's fired.
