Tardigrade 8

This is another interpretation of the tardigrade in clay.  I've been trying to find a way to accurately represent tardigrade claws.  When I make it as a free-standing sculpture, long, delicate claws tend to break off in the kiln, so in the past I've used larger feet which resemble mammalian bear claws.  With this one, I attempted to address the problem by building it on a base.  I like the way the claws came out, but they still don't look like tardigrade claws.
