1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Graduation/School-related event board? on: April 27, 2010 12:31:45 AM
How about adding a Graduation board in Occasions and Holidays? As a soon-to-be grad, I'd really appreciate some more discussion about this event. Perhaps other school/education related events could be included under this topic too, like end-of-school-year parties and whatnot.
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Shiny Things (pinch pot + extruder building) on: November 26, 2008 09:55:12 PM
Hello!

As mentioned, I had an awesome pottery class my freshman year. Two things I made:

My first pinch pot ever:

Raku's a wonderful thing.


I use it as a tea candle holder, you can see the candle bit in this picture. The metallic glaze looks awesome when it's lit.

This one was built from an extruder form (that's what they're called, right? It's been a while since the class)

It's functional.


Another view. (I know it's completely unnecessary)

Thanks for looking!
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Picasso Bobblehead! EDIT: Link to original pic on: October 27, 2008 12:26:06 PM
Hi! This is my first post with pics, so please excuse (and notify) me if it doesn't work.

So, I took an awesome ceramics class in my freshman year, and one of the assignments was to make a bobblehead. This is what I came up with:



It's inspired by Pablo Picasso's "Buste de femme au chapeau". (pictured here:http://www.sgallery.net/artnews/2007/08/26/old-master-modern-and-contemporary-prints-at-christies-london.html) I'm pretty proud of this one, despite the fact that her head ended up crooked when I glued the spring on, making her look contemplative and with a way-too-long neck.


Close-up of her head. Those eyebrows were hard.

It's painted with underglaze, then clear glaze on top.

Thanks for reading! Comments appreciated.
