Winged IG-88 Menorah

A few years I made a menorah with molds of IG-88 on the front.  IG-88 is the assassin droid from The Empire Strikes Back.  This menorah has only one image of IG-88, but it has wings.  The menorah itself is made from flat slabs of clay, so it's much lighter than my other menorahs.  There is also a very subtle pattern scratched in the clay on the front, but it didn't come out because the glaze is too thick.

I started another slab menorah with more elaborate butterfly wings.  The slabs were still a little moist while putting it together so it may not turn out as sturdy.

This is a spare winged IG-88 that got fired along with the chamsa scraps.
