I have Feet!

Well, of course I have feet but now I have feet as well :)

This is what the body parts look like before I clean them up :)
dirty, unmodified feet

This what they look like after I give them a "pedicure"

But, My feet are ugly and I hate them (yes, I have conjoined toes)

As you can see, they are rather ugly

These are the first part of the "What I hate" composite sculpture I am creating this year. It has a counter part, "What I like," also a composite sculpture.

Pondering something

How does someone go about asking anouther person if they can make a mould of their torso for an art project? Without coming off as a nut or pervert or something? I'm being serious because I have an idea and I need guys that are fit to make moulds of.

NCECA Preview

So there's a crystal glazed cactus outside the convention center...

I decided it needed to be fondled...

Just wanting to lick it, it's so pretty!

BTW, if anyone is thinking of something to get me for christmas... *wink wink, nudge nudge*

Hey Brian, new post!

Ok, so I haven't been very postful this semester.. Mostly I've been doing the same things, fighting with the translucent slip and all... So yesterday I decided to throw a bit.. (Frustration makes men do crazy things..) Here are my results:

A cookie jar or a honey pot with lid

Two pitchers


A small teapot

The feet still need to be dealt with, but that will happen here shortly.

Deflocculant disaster (no photos...)

So I'm at an impasse... my translucent slip refuses to deflocculate... i have abso-(insert favourite expletive here)-lutely no idea why it's getting thicker as i add more deflocculant (the exact opposite of what sodium sillicate and darvan is designed to do) so i'm just not gonna work on that at all today  because I don't want to mix anouther batch and it do the same thing... i guess i shall hand build things today, for a bit anyway...

Disaster day

So I didn't think today could get any worse after not getting much sleep, but oh it did.

broken sconces

Then while making a new sconce mold, a wall fell and plaster disaster #1 for 2009 occurred.  Thankfully, Ashley Bell, was there helping me pour the plaster as I knew there would be a problem, but I wasn't planning on a wall falling... Maybe just a bit of seepage, but not a wall collapse.  So I flounced off to Home Depot because I was a bit pissed off and needed real coddle boards so as to not have this problem happen to me again.. (because it has only happened to me)

But we now real coddle boards

Now I'm off to finish the new mold with real coddle boards so I don't loose my mind... what's left of it anyway...
