F2 "The Eater" Tornado Planter

By ChenowethArts on 05 July 2015 - 04:03 PM

F2 "The Eater" Tornado Planter
The Fujita scale is a measure of a tornado's intensity based upon the amount of destruction it causes...or how much it eats. Having experienced the destruction, first hand, of an F2 glancing off my home, it wasn't difficult to put a face on the monster that caused destruction in my neighborhood. Only now, new things grow from where the damage occured...thus a container for a plant with the form of the dark cloud of demolition impressed into the side.


Cats Drinking Porcelain

Cats Drinking Porcelain
I'm not really a cat person, but I chose to work with the basic shape because cats are far less variable in form than dogs and are thus more universally recognized, if that makes any sense. These images are developed using cut-out resists, colored slips, and sgraffito on porcelain.

The Wicked Witch is Dead - Tornado Pot

The Wicked Witch is Dead - Tornado Pot
The Wicked Witch Is Dead
This project was created as part of the Ceramic Arts Community forum: Community Challenge #2. The tornado implies form is the actual container intended for a plant. The entire work was thrown in three parts: the base/bowl, an angle tube/pipe, and the larger container. The small building and leg appendages were hand formed and attached prior to bisque firing. Finished height of the glazed piece is approximately 17".


EF-3 The Eater

EF-3 The Eater
I understand that tornadoes are measured on the Fujita Scale (not to be confused with a Fajita's impact on my scales) and ranked by the intensity of the destruction to human-built structures and vegetation...basically, 'how much the tornado Eats". This information is the inspiration for "EF-3 The Eater", a planter with facial features, including a tongue that has snatched a small structure like a lizard might catch a bug. And yes, this one is a little creepy...even for me :)

This container (greenware) stands 19" tall and is contructed of three separate, wheel-thrown pieces. The upper-most piece has been altered and has hand-built pieces added.

Another view of my wildflower batter bowl, with several of my tiny wildflower teaspoon rests. I have a whole bouquet of them to put in my Etsy shop!

Wildflowers Batter Bowl, 24 oz
I don't even want to talk about how long this took to make ... more a work of art than a production piece. But I enjoyed making it so much and this is the first piece I've ever made that came out even better than I imagined. I love everything about it (this never happens to me).

I used white slip on the inside of the bowl and white engobe on the flowers so the colors would show true. It worked very well, but some of the little speckles showed through anyway, which I found completely charming.

F2 - One More Time

F2 - One More Time
Version Two (EF-2) of the Tornado Planter has just started a long drying phase. With the help of Photoshop, I shaded out the messy studio so the planter is a little lot easier to see. This one is about 4" taller than the previous effort and the legs of the Wicked Witch are a little larger as well. The container is three wheel-thrown pieces assembled together with the addition of the 2 hand-built legs and 7 building parts. The entire work is stoneware and roughly 21" tall at the greenware stage.


platter with peaches

platter with peaches
touching up color where too thin or where it disappeared in the firing. refired to cone 6 in a cool spot to avoid cracking.

cannot get the final glazed pot to post here. computer threw up its hands and screamed ENOUGH when i tried. i had only been trying for several hours. the whole thing froze up and nothing would work for over 25 minutes. it is now 12:58 am. good night all. tried again next day. got it to post in only an hour or so of fighting. final peaches is the name it is under.
