New Sun & Moon Sculpture

3 Jan

Here’s the final version of the original sculpture, ready for the mold-making process. I’ll make the mold with the greenware before firing it.

Luv That Contrast

18 Dec

I just can’t stop making contrasting Sun-Moon pairs. Why stop? Here we have the Sun still taking things much more seriously than the Moon. I think I’ll make it a crescent moon with the tips pointing away from the Sun.

Christmas Angel Finished

2 Dec

The clay original of my Christmas Angel broke up during the mold-making process. Plenty of time to restore and salvage it later. The trade-off of a really good working mold is very much worth it. I can crank these out by the dozen now. God help us!

A Last, Lingering Look

18 Nov

My Christmas Angel is done. Next comes the slime, goo and possible destruction that is the mold-making process. Fingers crossed as I slime it with Vaselene, then pour on the silicone rubber.

Christmas Angel

10 Nov

My new Christmas Angel is coming along. I’d been putting off doing the fingers, but the basic gestures sort of came together automatically once I got started. Now it’s just a matter of fine tuning– and deciding what to put on the banner. I could go traditional with “Gloria” or “Noel”, but I also have a bit of an impulse to update the Christmas message: “Get Out Of Jail Free”.

Christmas Angels, etc.

2 Nov

It’s time to gear up for Christmas, and this year I don’t feel confident enough to take on a nativity scene. So I’m going full-angel from now until December. (I did start a more pagan-esque greenman, and a Queen of Hearts, but their fate is in question at this point. Some day I do want to sculpt through a deck of cards, though.)

Pity The Fool

25 Oct

I was at a party the other night, when I started talking to someone, only realizing after way too long that I was calling her by the wrong name. Hi, here’s me:

Full Moon Face 2.0

25 Oct

My first full moon face turned out pretty popular. But if I’d known then what I’ve learned since about selling on eBay, shipping, mold-making, etc., there are a lot of little details I would have done differently. If only I had it to do all over again. Hey, I do have it to do all over again, to wit:
