Coiled pot

I have been working on Africa as an inspiration . This is my first attempt at a coiled pot African lady . I am off to Portsmouth at the weekend for the quilt conference so I think I will be working on her coiled pots on the train . Never sit idle my Grandmother used to say , if she could see me now. ! 
I think I will have to work on her arms she has no muscles poor thing .
