Prompt: September Battle Royale: Monster Movies

Team: Randomizer

Bonus Points: WIP

Project Name: Face Wall-Hanging

Project Link:

Brief Description:  This guy was sitting around for the longest time unglazed, and I finally forced myself to just finish him. He is a little bit reminiscent of the Invisible Man (does that count as a monster movie?).

Project Picture:





Prompt: September : Star Wars

Team: Randomizer

Bonus Points: WIP

Project Name: Another Lidded Pot

Project Link:

Brief Description: Another one I finally decided to finish. When the lid is on, it's very dark inside. You can open the lid to let in the light : )

Project Picture:




Prompt: September: Anime

Team: Randomizer

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Thrown and Carved Cups

Project Link:

Brief Description: These are thrown cups that I then carved. The carving starts off as "drawing" a little bit in the clay before scooping it out.

Project Picture:



Prompt: September: Harry Potter

Team: Randomizer

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Sketchbook Re-bind

Project Link:

Brief Description:  For the first time ever, I finally convinced myself to do the Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook Project. When I got the book in the mail, I knew that it just wouldn't suffice as is, so I took it apart, cut some new paper to add in, and re-bound it. It reminds me a little bit of Tom Riddle's diary.

Prompt:August: Perfect Grain of Sand

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Sandy Soldate bowls with blue drizzles

Project Link:

Brief Description: I love working with this chunky soldate clay (even though it kind of tears up my hands after a while). I'm usually too lazy to actually measure diameters, so I just eyeball sizes when I'm aiming to make nesting bowls. After making a lot of bowls, I figure it's close enough (but shame on me, nonetheless). Also, these are round. And after high firing, this clay (when it's bare or thinly glazed like these) looks like sand.

Prompt: Side Quest: Red Alert!

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points: WIP it.

Project Name: Handpainted eye chips for blythe

Project Link:

Brief Description: Okay. This one will qualify as being based on a journey in crafting for me. I had handpainted new eyechips (the unfinished part) for this custom doll who recently arrived here in a trade. I finally got around to going to switch her old eyechips out. AND IT WAS A SUPER HUGE ORDEAL. A previous owner had used some awful glue for a few of her old chips and I spent literally hours trying to get them out. (Usually it's super easy, and you can just melt a hot glue stick, stick it on, and pull them out. I ended up taking her completely apart, soaking, prying, etc. before finally just melting hot screws into her eyes and yanking them out...) Trust me, it was a journey for sure. But I like her eyes now.

Prompt: August: Kraken's Tentacle

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Tentacle Planters

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Mohair wig for 1/6 BJD

Project Link:

Brief Description: I have this beautiful bjd with a big head (designed by Charles Creature Cabinet), who I've never been able to find a wig (that I like) for. Still not entirely sure, but I made this wig out of some mohair lambskin to see how she fares..

Ack! School started last week, and the time has flown by! (And I've slept most of my time at home...) Here are, hopefully, the rest of my submissions, as I have a lot of pottery to fit in these themes.


Prompt: July: Accountant Sea Guild

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Sea Theme doll dresses

Project Link:

Brief Description: I had a chance to stop by my favorite little fabric store before school started up and found that one of my favorite prints from the past had returned in a slightly different shade. So I found the bit I had left of the old (darker) print and made a dress in each.  (This length is totally off, though. They need to be shorter or longer-- I'll probably end up shortening these...)

Project Picture:






Prompt: August: Battle Royale: Magician

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Rustic Plate Set

Project Link:

Brief Description: Pottery is a little bit like magic. We put globs of dirt into a very hot oven, and it comes out as a solid bit of functional art. We actually wanted some smaller plates to use at home (these are about 7 inches, varying a bit for stacking, in diameter)

Project Picture:





Prompt: August: Mermaid Tears

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Mermaid bowls

Project Link:

Brief Description: These glaze colors remind me of mermaids.

So sorry we've been MIA! At least we got over to big island before school started back up, to see some of the youngest bits of earth!

Prompt: July : Guild of boring and unnoticed (via old crone, craftopia)

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Kaki blue glaze porcelain bowls

Project Link:

Brief Description: These bowls are boring. As bowls should be. (yet, they are useful.)

Project Picture:






Prompt: July: Guild of Learned Bookbinders and Librarians (via crone, craftopia)

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Lidded stoneware pot

Project Link:

Brief Description: A lidded pot can store things, keep them safe, and help maintain temperature and humidity. Just like a library.

Project Picture:




Prompt: July: Loaves you guild (crone, craftopia)

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Porcelain cups of POISON

Project Link:

Brief Description: All glaze is technically poison, because if you ingest it, it's like eating glass dust.
I made 6 of these little cups that may or may not be perfect for holding poison.

Alright! Gearing up for a big project dump! (Sorry- it might come in several posts... I've lost long posts in the past...)

Prompt: June: Climbing Scrap Mountain (old crone)

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Lē'ahi Blythe Dress

Project Link:

Brief Description: The top (yellow) part of this dress was a scrap of silk from a friend who was clearing out a stash of old fabrics. I had this other Hawai'i/Diamondhead print which I thought paired nicely.

Project Picture:




Prompt:UFO

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points: WIP it, Colors/Shapes

Project Name:Two simple blythe dresses

Project Link:

Brief Description:I had cut the fabric for these dresses in.. . December? Maybe. And then my sewing machine took a little hibernation for a while, so I finally had a chance to finish these last week when I took it out of hiding. I also think these prints have lots of different colors and shapes on them.

Prompt: July: Threadneedle Guild (via old crone: return to craftopia)

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points:

Project Name: Smartdoll sweetheart dress

Project Link:

Brief Description: It's not perfect, but I'm rusty (and I was never good at sewing anyway), and managed to churn this dress out for my 1/3 size bjd.

ACK! I don't know where July went! I have a lot of pottery and many other things I've been meaning to submit, but had a funny situation this past week with my job starting several days earlier than I thought it would, so I'm a little bit flustered!

Anyway, here's the battle royale so I don't miss it!

Prompt: July- Battle -Return to Craftopia (via the crone)

Team: Clan of Creators

Bonus Points: WIP

Project Name: Personal Tarot Starter Pack

Project Link:

Brief Description: I've been working on these watercolor 'tarot' cards for myself off and on for a long time (like, over a year?) and finally decided the "starter pack" was complete. These cards can transport my mind into another realm, but can also give me the chance to meditate and plan for future battle.
