I used to spend hours with paper dolls. changing outfits on flat, lifeless doll shapes… They seem silly, but there is something real creative about them. These are a ceramic version of those flat dolls. They are colorful and fun, hang from white cotton cord, ready for a window, a wall or a mobile. Their arms and legs are wired on separately to give them a real puppet feel. I think these are perfect for a little girl’s room window 🙂
This piece is pretty different. I got my hands on a great piece of wood with a really interesting shape. I set a mask made from several handbuilt clay pieces on the face of it. I then added very unique “hair” using glass beads and the coolest rocks I found on the beach in Jacksonville Florida. The rocks are unlike any I have ever seen before and have incredible character. these rocks all have natural holes in them, which I remember calling hag stones back in the day. This piece is fairly large, and hangs on a wall. You’ll never find another like it. Has a real tribal feel to it. Not sure which gallery it’s going to yet!
this a simple watch and learn video from an obvious master in making large hand built vessels from clay. Amazing watching him whip this thing out!
I love this video, teaching simple animal construction out of clay for very young children.
My new series is FunCtioNaL, if you can believe that.
In line with making functional plates – here is a great video on Handbuilt Plates – this is a great design, and a fun use of tools that you can make yourself.
