  1. From the album: Tornado Pot Sketches and Progress Images

    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.

  2. From the album: Tornado Pot Sketches and Progress Images

    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.

  3. From the album: Tornado Pot Sketches and Progress Images

    It is drying time for the greenware. Last night I sprayed on a couple of layers of slip for accents/shadows (and to make the legs as white as possible for post-bisque-firing under glazing. My thoughts (for now, at least) are to keep the glazing fairly light colored at the top and darker at the bottom. The legs will get the black and white stripe treatment. The shoes will be red (what else, right?). -Paul

  4. From the album: Tornado Pot Sketches and Progress Images

    I threw the three parts to this last night and did the trimming and assembly this morning. Adding the stem and tilting the container slightly off-axis reinforces the tornado theme. And based upon suggestion from CAC forum friends, I added small hand-built house parts to the side of the funnel shape. 'Still some work to do and some decisions to make about slips and underglaze, but I'm liking the direction this is headed. This will take some off-and-on work to get it ready for bisque firing...and with the assembly and the added house parts this one will set on the slow-dry shelf for a week before I'm brave enough to put it in the kiln. Description: 18" tall stoneware Wheel-thrown bowl, stem, and vessel...assembled while quite damp/pliable Handbuit house forms, sliced on the oblique and attached using traditional score/slip joining technique Some additional accent detail and texture added after basic assembly was complete.

    No cows (yet), but the wicked witch has been added to the craziness errr, container. Even I am laughing at this *snortle*.

  6. From the album: Tornado Pot Sketches and Progress Images

    I slipped this container into a tall spot in the kiln at the last minute to see how my glazes break over the undulating walls. Actually, I really needed the pot for the Anthurium that I received as a birthday gift back in January...it was quite root bound and begging for better living conditions. Container is about 13" tall, stoneware, fired to cone 10 reduction and glazed with a combination of Ohio White, Woo's Blue, and Clear (sprayed on in overlapping layers).

  7. From the album: Tornado Pot Sketches and Progress Images

    Two part construction container for sustaining plant life. Bowl form at the bottom captures any overwatering via small holes in the sides of the interior cylinder. Granted, this is not original at all, but the execution/technique is intended to deliver an original/loose/organic style.
