  1. Hate to say it, but I think I would use this to test a glaze pallet. Dip the upper half in a primary color, and the lower half in a pastel to almost clear. I am not sure which one would make it pop more. Although, too strong of a primary would mask the detailing and overshadow the star of the show---the detailing.

  2. Finally figured this piece out, been thinking about for days. The replicated ash brings in the primitive look, as does the form itself. However, you are moving up the color spectrum from pastel to bright yellow. This shift in color is purely modern, abstract. By the book, it should not work by mixing period references. But it does, and does very well. The brushwork towards the top reminds me of a Picaso technique: not overly definitive.

  3. I usually shy away from the human form: but this was done with some great artistic expression. The scaling is dead on, the proportions are right. The octopus is so well executed, it looks like a real specimen. Barnacles, and other ocean effects- good eye. The problem I have with the piece is not bringing the bust line up. By cutting the upper and middle area away: it has a "bra" appearance along the edges. The nipple on the left seems more natural, softened. The one on the right seems protruded: exaggerated to the point of being pornographic. Are you going to leave this in a  natural color, or do you plan on using color to further highlight details?

  4. Absolutely stunning piece. The form capture the eyes, and yet keeps the eye from forming a focal point. The glaze is likewise just as captivating. This piece would look completely different if a different "colored" glaze as used. That is what makes artistry: knowing how to make the canvas fit the paint.

  5. I understand that emotion. When I bought the acreage we live on, it was littered with deer stands. Tore them all down, and one of the beighbors came over in a huff because some belonged to him. Great detailing work on this piece: even the muscular folds are represented.

  6. Wish I had some artistic ability: just not there. I can appreciate the cleverness in the piece: but I can admire even more the technical skills required to make it. So fess up, what kind of clay can hold that shape when forming?
