I think this took about 10 hours of effort in the build. The refinement process took the longest time. My biggest challenge was figuring out the overall structure the completed build. I decided to seal the top of the skirt, then do a cross shaped slab construct on the inside that would go from the […]

Ceramic Chess Work : Knight

Ceramic Chess Work : Knight

By on June 8, 2015 in Completed Works with 0 Comments

To date this is the most popular form I have created. I’ve had at least 5 offers to buy this, unfortunately my friends who offer don’t really have any money, so this remains in my collection. I am however thinking about doing a series of resin editions which would have a price point that is […]

Boxer Completed!

Boxer Completed!

By on May 26, 2015 in Completed Works with 0 Comments

Finalized the Boxer this weekend and am very pleased with the result. The soda ash wash worked perfected on the lower portion of the shorts and gloves, and melted the letters on the gloves and shorts in an interesting way. I really like that the face has a rich black against the gray hair even […]

SAHMs – Social Commentary

SAHMs – Social Commentary

By on May 19, 2015 in Completed Works with 0 Comments

Initially I was going to simply call them “the Sirens” but I think “SAHMs” or Stay at Home Mom’s seems to be fitting based on the emotional presence of the group together. It is my hope not to denigrate stay at home mom’s but to isolate a persona of type and create a social commentary by illustrating an emotional […]

Sanctity and podium

Sanctity and podium

By on March 23, 2015 in Completed Works with 0 Comments

I continue to think about the crafted podium form creating a tower of sorts. In my sketchbook I am working out podium forms similar to Frank Gehry architecture. I really enjoyed the last construction, but it seems too heavy. When I do the construct next time I’m going to try a how-light-can-you-make-it game. Uncertain about the […]

Corset Vase Form

Corset Vase Form

By on March 18, 2015 in Completed Works with 0 Comments

Completed the corset designed vase as an experiment in form and texture. Applied soda ash washes on top of underglazes to create different and interesting effects. Not my usual figurative / bust form, but I was interested in a design and implementation that perhaps I could sell in a different context. I do find the […]

Pedestal

Pedestal

By on March 9, 2015 in Completed Works with 0 Comments

Completed the pedestal this past week and fired over the weekend. Not certain how these two play together? It sort of looks like this sacred form is either wearing a skirt or is on a skirted table. The effect of the pedestal is fairly dynamic and the shrine composed and staid, so it may not […]

Shrine to the OG

Shrine to the OG

By on March 3, 2015 in Completed Works with 0 Comments

Pre-bisque fire test of the candles and how they smoke the form. Once bisqued I expect most of the carbon to disappear. this was really helpful because I can see how inconsistent the smoking of the form is. I may force the finished product to have a more balanced smoke effect by tilting some of […]
