Default REcent work

Title. Worked until he could be worked no more


Bowls (still greenware)
THe first of 2014 Made from the innards of the chicken coop to th tea set.

the last of 2013
THe greenware will look a whole lot different when it is fired.I have had one imortant piece stolen at the guild and I am just hurt by it. THat bowl was to belong to Hyia, and made with a great deal of love. I would have liked to have seen how it turned out.

I love that cat bowl!

I still have the sculpture of Kya proudly displayed at home, and the miniature of the sleeping chihuahua on my desk at work. They are so lovely, and they get many compliments!

I made that one so Ressie can stick his head in it and I can take a pic.
Which sounds silly but it is why. It's made out of porcelain. I wanted to see how well the mason stains hold if I fire it in the electric kiln and not the gas.

I am very glad you are happy with my work. THat meas the world to me.

LUcy two.. REssie broke Lucy one.


Since I can't seem to get the lady that bid over 300 dollars donation for a costume t set to send me photos (that has never happened before) I made this cup to test out the mason stains and see if they come out right, and maybe to tempt her to get it done and get them to me, or even just a written description. I dunno. But anyway..cat cup. I do make sure it isn't going to clunk you in the glasses if you really drink out of it.

still wet.

the cat is just too little to get pretty blue eyes in. If I do the tea pot I will make one the handle and it will be big enough.

this is about life size.
Hyia calls him Mustache man. She says she likes him. THat's that last hard piece of clay from the bottom of the bag too hard to do anything else with and not enough to bother re hydrating. He can be number two in the worked until he could be worked no more series.

YOur a hard crowd for feedback. Just posted to get outside perspective, what's a good idea an what's not. If your not interested, I won't share more.
i share in case someone else might be learning stuff too and can get someting out of my trial and error, but also in case someone sees something that could be better. sighs.

I love seeing your work, please keep sharing!

My experience with clay is very limited so I can't really give any insights, but I love love the tea set. I wish I had won it. Your miniature work blows me away .

Smkie, I love your work! Love the animal related peices, of course. Some of the bowls reminds me of a smiling sun

thanks (((HUGS)))

I think I will be working on tea set forever. Cat cup two I have been working on two days, and who knows if it will work or not, if it doesn't i will keep doing it until it is right. I am stopped on some parts of this until I can get to the clay supply store which is forever and a day away. I wish I could just have them mail it, but if for any reason it freezes it would be worthless.

THis is the headache for now. Sometimes I need a little brain relief like mustache man, I have no idea what he will look like either after firing. I hope it works. THese mason stains seem to keep their color at the high temp.
