Here is another project I did in my ceramics class. The piece(s) are one object transforming into another. I chose some slightly personal objects. The zipper because I love to sew, and the dragonfly because they are the coolest and most majestic creature, well in my opinion! I call it the 4 pieces together "Zipperfly". Each piece is about a foot to a foot and a half long and wide. Here they are!

Normal Zipper

Transforming piece. 75% Zipper, 25% Dragonfly!

Second transforming piece. 25% Zipper, 75% Dragonfly...

And the Dragonfly!

This project was definitely the most challenging and frustrating ceramic project yet! The pieces kept breaking while I was making them. This was mostly likely due to how big they are, and because they dried out to quickly while in the green/wet state. I almost gave up on the pieces altogether, but I am glad I stuck it out and glazed them! They turned out pretty good, well I think!

Here are a few close ups!

Thanks for looking!

This is where crafting occurs both DAY and NIGHT!

These are awesome. I would never have realised how big they are from the pictures. I was lying in the garden, lost in my own head, watching a dragonfly flitting around the tops of the maple trees earlier....
