A Spartan helmet constructed using the coil method with red earthenware clay... I first made a base, then rolled coils and simply didn't close them for the slit in the front. For the eyeholes, I placed a sponge and continued my coils, closing them for the dome. I added the noseguard and crest later. For the glaze, I used "Aztec turquoise" - one specially formulated for use on red clay - which gave it a matte finish and a rustic look.
