Once a year Pence Gallery sends out 5" x 7" canvas boards for their Tiny Show. Years past I would just paint a still life or portrait of one of my pieces. This year I decided to do a sculptural piece that fits on the board. I built the "portrait" on a slab measuring 5 3/8" x 7 3/8" ( I estimated the piece would shrink less than 1/2") and trimmed away the background. It came out of the kiln, fitting the the canvas board right at the edge.
At this angle it does seem the sides are going off, but they actually line up.
