Fox bowl

This is my largest wheel thrown piece. I started with 8 pounds of clay.  I used sgraffito to carve the fox, but I couldn't carve enough detail without making it a muddled mess so I decided to paint it in with underglaze.  I'm not happy with the eyes but the rest of it turned out alright.  He looks like he hasn't had rabbit in a week. The field mice aren't cutting it and he's jonesing for some hasenpfeffer.

Practicing cutouts - yarn ball

Here is another piece I did cutouts on.  Its a knitting needle holder and I cut the shape of a yarn ball into it.  The top holes are to weave yarn pretties through, but I need to dig through my stash to find just the right fiber for the job.

Throwback Thursday - ATC's

Three ATC's I made for swaps...

Tarepanda - This is a cutout in the black paper and laid over the white.

The Beaded Side of the Moon.  Beads, glitter and paper.

Vampire - Glitter paper was used for the lips.

Practicing cutouts - owl

One of the new techniques I wanted to try was cutouts.  This was intended to be some unidentified nocturnal creature but everyone has been calling it an owl.  I REALLY don't like it. I'm almost embarassed to post it.  Lots of people told me they like it though.

Just passed the leather hard stage
