Steampunked Badass Elephant -Work in Progress

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Ok, I may be stretching things a bit, but I think it is pretty Badass-ed. Maybe I’ve been watching my husband play Borderlands 2 a little too much.

Created by throwing 4 cylinders, one pot, and one spout. Putting them together, altering them, adding some hand building, sculpting a bit, and using the technique of “pulling handles” for the tusks.  Without further ado,  my Steampunked, Badass Elephant.

Left Handed Juicer Made The Etsy Treasury!

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

My last batch of clay that went through the fire came out looking beautiful!

I’d listed these pieces in my Etsy store yesterday. I was surprised to get an email today saying that the left handed citrus juicer had been added to an Etsy Treasury!

Because the treasuries don’t last long, I’ve added a screen shot here for prosperity.

More Advanced Forms in Clay

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Here is a batch of my most recent fired work. I’ve experimented with more advanced forms in clay, and working on my skills with pulled handles. The handles on the vase please me, so I must be getting a bit better at the creation of handles. The juicer was made from a two walled cylinder. And then there’s the teapot, probably the most advanced form there is since it requires a cylinder, a spout, a handle and a lid made similarly to a bowl turned upside down with a nob on top.
