Three Fingers, of Course

3 May

I slapped together a quick gargoyle body and put the head on. The feet and hands are quick gestural studies, tons of fun to make. I love gremlins & gargoyles because it’s all play. No fussing over proportions.

Look Out Scoob!

2 May

Back to sculpting, after a foray into mold-making. If I can ever reproduce this in concrete, it’ll make some garden art, I think. This one is turning out suspiciously dog-like.

Sunday Afternoon Moon Dump

8 Apr

Time for a Sunday afternoon Moon Dump. I just got this series of crescent moons back from the kiln. I used an angled-spray technique with the colored glass to try to create a shadow effect. I’m already thinking of how to refine the tech.

Sun Face Again

3 Apr

Now that I’m trying to learn to make molds (which seems more time-consuming and involved than just knocking out a few more actual sculptures), I find myself spending more time on each original sculpture.

His Moonness

25 Mar

Just working the angles, playing with ways of trying capture moonness in clay.

Cowlike Gargoyle

2 Sep

Another gargoyle head is done. This one turned out more bovine-looking, or maybe doglike.

Finished That Gargoyle

1 Sep

The latest gargoyle is done. I feel a series coming on.

New Gargoyle

31 Aug

I have a new gargoyle in the works. I’ll do the head tomorrow. Maybe it’ll be a bored gargoyle.

The Other Gargoyle

29 Aug

The second bookend gargoyle is done. Instead of quietly pondering his books, this one is waxing eloquent.

Busy Busy Busy

13 Jul

I haven’t been posting much lately, but I have been making stuff. Today was a second firing of a second batch of leaf trays. The incremental improvement continues. This time the glaze is a little better chosen and applied, the plates are a little smoother. Next time, I’ll ask people what they want, and start focusing on usable designs and sizes. I think people are going to want bigger plates than I’ve been making.
