  1. From the album: WIPs

    At least it turned out nearly flawless. Large 12" across, planter from a gritty brown stoneware with off-white slip painting under clear glaze. Formed inside an automotive oil pan with coils.

  2. From the album: Rogryphon's stuff

    Resubmitting photo since the other seems to have vanished. Little planter for community challenge #2
  3. 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.

  4. From the album: newer work

    This is a one-piece hanging planter, a form I made in the hundreds, back in the day. The water catcher is thrown onto the bottom of the planter as a part of the trimming process. It's planted with aloe, and is a gift to my son the chef, who sometimes collects burns in the course of working.
  5. 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.

  6. From the album: Handbuilding work

    Those ears were almost the death of me. Since he was so thick (even after doing the "pumpkin seed scoop" to his insides after I cut the hole) he required long, slow drying. Our cubbies at the studio are along the walls of the handbuilding room with tables in the center. One day I was there and decided that he was sticking out too far and someone might bump him. So I rearranged the cubby so I could face him inwards and I bumped him and knocked his ears OFF! They were reattached with paper clay, vingear, spooze combo that I could probably never repeat those proportions again. It worked and they made it through glaze firing. However my brushwork on them is awful ... you can see every brush stroke. I'm thinking that they won't stick out too much from under the plant leaves so should be ok.
  7. From the album: Handbuilding work

    This is the full size pig planter ... his "honey bun" of a tail was slip/scored to attach so there wouldn't be so many parts sticking out to break off.
  8. From the album: Handbuilding work

    This is a model done prior to making a full size pig planter. He was made using what my instructor calls the "hollow potato" method... basically pinch pot until you can close it up. He was then rolled on the table to set the overall shape using the trapped air inside the potato to push against. He's very heavy for his size since the walls are at least 1/2" thick. Next time they'll be thinner before I close up the shape. I dabbed black glaze in his eyes and nostrils to highlight but it ran ever so slightly on the white. Very happy with him.
  9. 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

  10. 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*.

  12. 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.

  13. From the album: Favorites

    I really love the way the pattern on this planter came out. This is wheel thrown with applied engobe, sgraffito geometric pattern. Fired to ^6 electric with commercial glazes.
