1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Simple nativity on: January 06, 2009 11:05:58 AM
This year, instead of opening chocolate windows in a standard advent calendar, I decided to make a nativity set that we can unwrap in the days leading up to Christmas.  I'm hoping to create tradition for my family that we can continue through the years.  The kids really got a kick out of discovering each new character as the days passed.  There was an angel, originally, but she was broken quickly ( I guess my little heathen enjoy the story but not the religious aspects Wink ).
They are all clay, bisque fired and then painted with acrylic color.
Let me know what you think.
The whole shebang (I made the base at a winter craft fair workshop)

Mary Jesus and Joseph

The three wise men (as I painted I decided they were from India, Egypt and Greece)

And the shepherd with his knit sheep

At least that is what I am asking myself.  My daughter found a Pokemon comic at our local thrift shop and it was love at first sight.  Slowly and surely the obsession grew and grew until almost every other word relates back to the weird little monsters.
So, to feed the fires, I made this

At the aforementioned thrift shop I found a bright yellow fleece blanket and he grew from there.
She loves him, wonky arms and all.

My first project post, here goes....

After a few years of wanting to get my hands back into clay this is what came out of my first class.  Nothing else I did was particularly interesting but her I love.  I got to mingle two of my passions, yarn and ceramics.  I poked holes into the head bisqued, glazed then fired then attached yarn and set it with a hardening agent.
The mask itself is red clay glazed with 'antique blue'.  I was very pleased with the result
