here are some shots of a figure i am working on. i am going more towards sculptural work, i really like the idea of creating a piece from combined forms thrown on the wheel. there is a happy balance for me, between making functional and non.functional. by no means am i a production oriented potter. it is best not be in the black and white, the all or none...i am striving to ejoy the fruits of the gray..really one day.,i hope to have a multi-media studio...ahhhh dreams.. but i do employ elements of production, working on certain forms, throwing by using only the weight of the clay and the eye. need to hop off here and get to work! i am excited about today..the pics might be out of order, still have downloading issues...this brother is a clsed form made from two thrown forms, i will do some sgrafitto work on him, and plan on giving him ears, and putting some real big rusty iron hoops in there! the covered piece is a fertility piece, in this pics it is an ode to the artist cristo...what a strange and glorious cat...may you be glorious today!! chao.
