11  dripping rings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rrose_cestlavie on: March 20, 2009 08:38:05 AM
here are a few sterling silver cast rings i made recently. a good friend of mine is a photographer, so he's going to help me get some better photos, but i thought i'd put these up for now and see what you all thought.

[EDIT: still no pro. pics yet, but i submitted them to a juried show today. so here's a quick shot of the rings on their display]

12  doodles in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by rrose_cestlavie on: February 11, 2009 10:01:26 PM
first of all, i absolutely love doodles. i think they're fantastic. i collect doodles from friends, family, teachers, strangers--anyone. i think you can tell a lot about a person through their doodles. so when i got my first glass assignment (i'm in a glass kilnworking class) and the topic was "drawing" with sheet glass, i knew i wanted to incorporate doodles.

here's what happened:

i sandblasted doodles that other people gave me onto the sheet glass insert for picture frames. i know it's hard to see the images because i intentionally made the drawings difficult to see without getting close and personal with the work.

hope you enjoy!

13  "you become what you always were.." in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by rrose_cestlavie on: January 10, 2009 07:35:13 AM
"a very big fish"

i made this fishie for a sculpture class a few semesters ago. the assignment was to take a found object (i used a purse) and extend that object into something else using only planer material (flat paper, cardboard, mat board, etc). aside from the mouth, everything is cardboard and paper grocery bag hot glued together. i hope you like it!

i'm not sure if this is where this post belongs, but it's made of cardboard..so that's paper, right?

14  circular saw necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rrose_cestlavie on: December 22, 2008 01:28:37 AM
last year i had an assignment of making a stop motion animation.  i set mine inside of a necklace-my good friend Heather was nice enough to stand still long enough for me to switch out 36 separate inserts. i don't have the actual animation to upload Sad but i have some stills.

the animation is a circular saw cutting across the frame.

15  petri dish felt installation in Felting: Completed Projects by rrose_cestlavie on: December 21, 2008 11:36:43 PM
This past semester I took a beginning fibers class, and one of the first projects we did was felt.  It was a really open assignment--the final product had to show "transformation" in at least 3 ways in at least 3 steps.  I got really interested in molds and petri dishes, so i took a little of that into this project (molds actually became an underlying theme for most of the projects i did in that class).

Anyway..here's the end result:

17  pencil drawn portrait question in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by rrose_cestlavie on: August 13, 2008 05:40:33 PM
hey guys. my good friend's birthday is this month, so i'm drawing a portrait of the two of us to give to her based off this pic:

i've gotten a good portion of it done [both of our faces, one of the hats, hair], but i was wondering what i should do about that plant. i really think it might look awkward if i include it and was planning on just editing it out. i just wanted some opinions other than my own.

[once my camera's batteries charge up i'll post pics of the work in progress so you can get a better idea of what might look good.]
thanks in advance!!

while on vacation my friend let me give him a haircut.
with the help of another friend we developed the "horseshoe crab" cut.

a combination bowlcut and rattail.
i have a ridiculous love for all terrible haircuts, so this one ranks pretty high.

in process:

post helmet-removal [excuse the sideways-ness]:

the finished product:

Great job!  How did you mount it to the wall?

it's super glued to a little triangle of poplar 1x2 that i had left over from another project. then i just mounted that to the wall so that it hangs at an angle.

(ignore the dust..apparently i need to do some cleaning. haha.)
