OK so I am just finishing up my fifth quarter as a ceramic student, I am mainly a hand building sculptor, the following are SOME of the last three quarters pieces.
These are a few of the pendant's I made, a mix of lowfire glazes that went into lowfire and Raku then finished with acrylic.
This beautiful plate was thrown very thick on the wheel and then he carved through one side when trimming, I stole it and carved the rest of the design.
Same friend threw this very thin plate, this is the third time we've attempted to achieve this design and the only one to really work. I am SOOO pleased with how it came out!
I had a blast with this piece and it sold almost instantly at the pottery sale our school did. Thrown by a friend, he accidentally trimmed through the rim of it but the flat plate was to nice for me to let him destroy it.
My friends not to happy with this one, but for me it was fun to just do, there was no design in mind but it reminds me very much of a cookies for Santa plate for young children.
These are hand built via a slab technique, a soap and tooth brush set, the tooth brush cup has holes in the bottom for drainage.
Garden tomato with attitude, sleeping sweet peas, and the evil carrot (I used a low fire glaze then tortured it in Raku)
Dragon head that sits in my Rosemary bush.
The first bathroom set I did, toothbrush holder with holes in bottom, soap dispenser, jewelry catch, and hair-tie cup. It's done in a seed theme, so seed, sprout and tree.
I have more fun pieces coming real soon so please keep an eye out, including dream catchers, teapots, and a belly dancer.
