Default Art Unleashed 2012

This is their 100th year of service and I want to do good by them. So far this is what I have come up with. If all three turn out, then all three will go. Surely one will be something I can be proud of.
THis is Taffy, inspired by Taffy who is up for adoption, she says Mawr Paweese.




Old dog with a heart of gold...will be black, lots of mica with hopefully a white face.


and for VIctor, a Pointer dreaming
so far this and old dog have survived their first firings with no cracks or other problems.


this is Taffy.

THe pointer is my favorite. IT is easier when you have the model right in front of you and you can say now how does this bone go, and does that muscle bunch up if the leg goes this way....the other, I can only try for the best. I sure hope Old dog works in the firing like I have it in my head. I put a ton of the surface trying for Mary's silver ears. Fingers crossed. NOthing is getting fired outside until this drought is over with. My neighbor throwing her cigarettes out without extinguishing them is making me paranoid enough.

Those are so gorgeous!

I'm so awestruck by 3D artwork--I just can't do it at all. Your work is so, so beautiful.

Old Dog looks like Mary and Neccy blended

made with both in mind, thanks for seeing this...and it's definitely Neccy's way of looking at me with a chuckle. I also looked at her loose skin under her neck and such.

I would love to buy the pointer. Omg. If I saw that in a store I would snatch it up in a heartbeat.

He went to the guild today with a page of written stuff...please don't handle unless your a kiln tech so you don't smear his spots...please put him on the second shelf facing the wall where I have had the best luck..and a drawing of where that place was..please put him in Paul or Elly's care and not on the public shelf so he doesn't get stolen. Now I will worry for 2 weeks because that is what I do best. I put the iron oxide on so carefully, trying to duplicate what I did last time, flickering it for speckles off of the tip of a tiny brush. He is just right for desk tops in offices...and pointer art is popular, so I hope for a good donation. I think it is my best piece to date. I hate leaving my work in progress in other people's hands. If I screw it up, I can be steaming mad at myself for a long time, but I don't want to feel that way about anyone else. ONe year someone stole a piece that a friend made for the totem. I got a feeling it must have turned out really nice. Not like we will ever know. I like so much about the guild, except for how they put out finished work. The honor system is fine if it is a children's class and the pieces are thick and obviously done by small people but when I spend a week working on something and I don't even get to see how it turns out, I get pretty angry. IT is the main reason I switched to raku.
