Wow, I'm amazed by how quickly you are able to create these spectacular drawings. Something that big would take me absolutely ages to decorate! I love the videos - especially the upside down perspective changing end to this one... Oh, you had asked a bit ago about my truck platter pricing - those are typically around $125. I'm still struggling with how to price this work though, it is so time consuming. With the current state of our economy though, I'd really like to keep things affordable. You seem like you have a good balance between smaller and larger items - I need to work on that!

thanks kip. i use the forms as sketch books(permanent ones!)..i try and let the designs evolve as the work goes. no pressure, since i always have pots lined up to deco...i just try to stay in a flow....... that is a great price on the platter, maybe a bit low!;)...i was talking with a friend, and telling them how i almost always carve the design in one sitting, whether it be a cup or a huge form....i would like to try and take my time, say a week on one piece, really detail it...
