How's that dryin, bub? Looks like a pretty smooth clay. Have you hollowed out the back? Lots of differences in thickness puts a lot of stress on pieces. The thinner areas dry faster than the rest so they start to contract first and cracks begin. I like to wrap extremities in plastic, then drape paper towels over them, put them on a damp plaster bat, triple plastic wrap the whole thing for a week to even everything out, only then begin the drying process. The paper towels on top of the piece catch condensation drips in there.

From there, you can take a couple routes for drying safe and slow:

A few hours a day, tent some newspaper over it to protect it from drafts, then wrap it back up. Repeat until bone dry.

Orrr, enclose it in a big cardboard box with a little bowl of water with a sponge in it (to act as a wick) inside with it. Kind of a ghetto humidified drying box.

Oh, and bisque fire reallly fucking slow. Like a 200ºF preheat/candle for 12 hours, and a 10+ hour schedule.
