All your work is wonderful but I particularly like the green vortex bowl. I've tried to make a design like this using black underglaze and coloured glaze. It turrned out messy.

How'd you get yours so symmetrical?

I havent a clue really! It's not very symmetrical up close. I just used a bit fatter brush that usual and did one color first, then the other.

Since I had never taken an art elective my entire time is high school, and being interested in most art forms, I took on a ceramics class for my final trimester of senior year.
"Clay? Pshh easy-peasy," I thought.... I WAS WRONG! It takes some time to get used to all the different techniques and the consistency of clay! And glazing is pretty tough for me too, as I try to hurry and just end up with huge glops of mesy glaze Tongue
But, I digress! Here are my projects from my one and only art elective in high school! I liked it so much that I'm hoping to take another class either at our local center for the arts or in college!!

These are two bowls made on the wheel. I don't know the brand of glaze, but one is called "Melon," and the other is "Mardi Gras." I'm a sucker for awesome names Tongue

This is my FAVORITE project I made! It's an incense burner, and it's a combination project, with the vase-shaped part being pinch, the vine coil, and the plate and leaves slab.

This one was an "animal project," in which our only requirement was that we must make an animal of some sort using pinch construction and then we had to cut it in half and hollow it out. Soooo I made Hello Kitty! Because I'm obsessed Grin

Another project had to be "food," of some sort. This one is titled "The Most Important Meal of the Day," for obvious reasons!

This one is called "Pretty Ugly," because, well, it is. It was my first time making a pinch pot, so needless to say it is not very smooth. And then for some strange reason the red glaze on the bottom never showed up at all the first time! So I reglazed and got this very strange effect, which some other kids likened to blood...?! Well, who knew ceramics was so violent?! XD

I have a tiny obsession over the city of Paris after my first and only visit, so here I used it in a slab carving (I don't know what to call this method of scraping out unwanted parts?) of the Eiffel Tower! It was the simplest thing I could think of really.

My two teacups, the red one slab contruction glazed "Firecracker," and the other coil glazed blue and purple. The coil one holds my collection of fortune cookie fortunes and the slab one holds embroidery floss!

I made this slump mould dish for my parents to put in their living room and matched the colors to the furniture and paintings. I rather like it, even though the inside was originally red and green, and looked like a Christmas vortex of misery and woe :O Looks better reglazed all pretty much green!

And finally one of the more intricate things I made was my "fantasy house" project. FML this thing sucked to make!
It's based on the nursery rhyme about the "old woman who lived in a shoe." There is one old woman, 15 children, a dog, a cat, and 3 toys on this baby! Talk about time-consuming!
This project is pretty crappy because I rushed through it, but I like the concept and I got a 100% grade on it. Oh well!

Phew, that's a lot of photos!!!
Thanks for looking, comments are appreciated Smiley Smiley Smiley

10  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / my sweater boots! on: January 09, 2010 08:08:19 PM
inspired by this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333544.msg3852835#msg3852835
those boots are sooo cute, and i thought to myself, "hey self. you could make some pretty neat boots too!"
so, i did  Cheesy

the finished product!


* 1 pair of black canvas mary jane flats, which, in my middle school glory, i painted all over. (names have been blurred out to protect the innocent) Cheesy
anywho, i chopped off the straps, and evened out the edges a bit.

* 1 Gap brand cardigan sweater, too big for me and too itchy anyways!
sadly, no photo of this.

* hot glue gun, ftw. i love these things!

i chopped off the sleeves off of the sweater at the seam of the armpits/shoulders, where it is kinda diagonal, you know.
i DID NOT take any length off the original sleeves, i left those babies longggg so that i could scrunch the boots as much or as little as i please!
also i did not have to take the sleeves in any, as they were already cut close and fitted. easy peasy.

here's an example of my looooong sleeves...on my leg....all the way up to my thigh! i wouldn't really wear them like this Tongue

hot glued the sleeves to the flats, as in the post i was inspired by. i don't know how to explain it, but check out the post for yourself Smiley

annndddd viola! cute lil' sweater boots! i can't wait to wear them to school and have people ask where i got them Cheesy
