Ceramic Bird House Part II (1 Viewer)

Hi All,

I didn't get much a of a response to my questions so, I just winged it (get it, winged it?). the hole is a bit oversized now, but I expect the clay to shrink 20% between wet and fired.

Just thought I would show the end result.

Bah humbug
Looks great. Not sure what part I was, or practicalities of ceramic bird houses (eg got to have drainage, keep out of direct sun as could get v hot?)

If the hole isn't the right size, might need a lip, don't know how that would work, which it may need anyway for strengthening to get the correct size?
