Thanks Gents!

Hi TC!...it's been a while.

Cannibal Bunnies - a work in progress.

Okay, let's clear the air right out of the shoot, just as to not confuse any new folks that might be on the Site. This Cannibal Bunnies (not sure if that is the title) work that I have done below is "not" tiki!....It's a bunch of bunnies!

It does not have a mid-century design since to it. It is not a de-evolution. And most likely, it is really not even a revival in any way? If anything, it is an evolution of sorts...It started in an old place, and ended up in a brand new place...It evolved into something different.

Let me explain; for me, one of the things that makes this work interesting (and relevant to my thread here) is that this piece was most assuredly influenced by tiki, and Kate's Cannibal thread
"here" in particular . I have long been intrigued, and haunted by the original cannibal trio. Now, I know I said on Kate's thread that I was not going to alter the original images into rabbits, but I just couldn't help it. This altered image was in my mind, and it just had to come out.

Another thing that intrigued me to do this work was that it really pushed my own technical skills. These guys are joined to be one piece. 20" high x 4" wide. Hollow - thin walled. It should shrink about 6% when fired. If it does indeed pull threw the firings, there will be many firsts in this piece for me.

It's always a little touchy to post something before it's gone through the final firing because (as we all know) anything can happen. I, however, like to show my clay work in this green/wet, leather hard stage. When the work is at his point, it is my favorite part of the whole ceramic process...the clay looks so much more juicy and alive to me. As it dries out a little more, I'll take a little fine sandpaper to some of the spots to smooth it out some.

Thanks for looking

What Grog, Swizzle and MadDogMike said and more. I can't believe that this can be done with thin walls. Wow! You are a master over the clay. We love bunnies and we miss our past pets. RIP Louie Louie, Scratches, Frank, and Raisin. I'm looking forward to your next posts, Wendy

I am about halfway working my way through all your old posts, but had to comment on how crazy awesome that bunny totem thing is. I just do not know how the heck you are going to fit it into a kiln.
