Thanks guys! I really appreciate the kind words. Plus I've never been on the feature projects part either. Very cool.
12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Art from Printer Paper: Mice and Pirate Ships on: April 02, 2009 07:33:39 PM
I'm not really sure where to put these pieces, but I guess papercraft is the closest thing. I was inspired by some images found on the internet a long while back of an artist who works exclusively with 8.5 x 11 printer paper and makes these incredibly detailed 3D pieces from them. these are nowhere near as amazing as his pieces, but I thought I would try my hand at designing and cutting some of my own. I found thinking in 3D from 2D is a bit more difficult than I expected. But I liked the challenge.

(This first one is supposed to be of mice if you can't tell)

Thanks for looking!

13  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / A Day at the Doctor's Office on: April 02, 2009 07:27:21 PM
This is a piece that I was photographing for my portfolio and thought I would share it here. The assignment for the piece was to simply make anything that did not resemble something in the world. This one gave me a lot of grief (it is surprisingly difficult to get clay to fight gravity) and had it fall apart completely about 4 times during the making/drying process. Unfortunately, the glazing got messed up, but structurally, I really like this piece.

This piece is one that I made in my beginning ceramics class last semester. The assignment was to make a teapot using slabs. Unfortunately, the spout doesn't work too well and tea would go every where, but it was fun to make.

This is a shot with all the cups stacked up. Together, the whole thing is about 21 inches tall.

15  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Gnawma-Jean on: April 02, 2009 07:20:22 PM
It feels like so long since I've posted anything that I've made! I recently took some photos of ceramic pieces I've made in the last year for my portfolio (I'm currently trying to switch my major from bio to art - big change, I know) and thought I would show some stuff that I made last semester in beginning ceramics.

This piece I've affectionately named "Gnawma-Jean." The assignment was to make an organism that does not exist in the world. She ended up being a cross between a dinosaur, a grasshopper, and a praying mantis. I don't know, she seems to be a bit like a Rorschach test because everyone who looks at this piece seems to see a different animal. Ah well.

Oh, thanks everyone! Very flattering. I appreciate.

As for the method it was just plain old super-cheap freezer paper and fabric paint. Very technical.

(and btw, I was totally going for something Frankie Goes to Hollywood-esque  Grin )

I'm so in.

Are we designating this only New Who or only Old Who? Or a mix of both?

And I love the detail.

Great job!

19  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Tree Stump Tea Pot on: November 04, 2008 10:21:41 AM
This semester I am taking beginning ceramics and this is my first completed project. It's my first ever ceramics piece, but I really like how it turned out. For the assignment we had to make two coil vessels, one that was at least 7 inches in diameter and one that was at least 10 inches tall. This one was my wide one, obviously. (I made a british phone booth for my tall one but it came out brown after it was glazed and fired  Sad ). So, yes. First teapot! It actually pours, too, just not a lot at a time.

Thanks for looking!

I don't make much tea, so I filled it with candy!

I LOVE it!

It's (as the Doctor would say) Fantastic! Great job. I wish I could embroider like that.
