MadDog - I changed up direction a little on this platter....I think I'm pushing the envelope a little on this one by using this low fire clay on such a big piece...don't know for sure? I will most likely not put a ton of time in the overall design of this one as I am using it as kind of a test.

Henrik - Yup this store brought low fire clay I am using here has a some grog in it, but not as much as I would like to see. I did not have any loose grog here in the studio to wedge into that clay before I threw that slab out, so well just give it a go and see what happens. I have some cone 5 clay with sand in it here if this low fire stuff fails, but after playing with this stuff for a while now, I think it will make it.

LLT - I'm glad you like the first in my Martha Stewart Series

Toe - Me too! If we can ever talk ole Henrik into coming over here...I would be all giddy too! Maybe we'll get lucky and he will show up for Oasis and we can have one big ass Clay Jam going with all the out of towners? Other Clay Jams - let's get-um going soon....we gots plenty-o-time to pump out some more fun stuffs for GROG's Show.

Well, I was able to move forward just a little last night...had to work at the other place late. I pulled that slab back out of the metal snow rider form and cut a hole in it....this should make handling this platter, and future platters, much easier. I lined the form with a trash bag and put the slab back in...I only had time to take it to where you see it....more soon. All said and done, I will have about 2 bags of clay, or 50 lbs into this guy, which means one will need a big ass 16 penny nail sunk into a stud, or something like that, in order to hang this platter up on a wall.

Was that a vintage Flexible Flier coaster you chopped up?

Thanks K and G...pick any weekend boys....except Feb. 14th - 15th.

Wheeler, naw, that metal snow rider was brought about 11 years ago. This thicker metal kind doesn't flex really. With this metal type, you can really fly like a bat out of hell down a snow covered hill...take a candle and wax the bottom up real good

Had to baby sit the bird last night...the kid takes to tools like a duck takes to water. We are using rolled out coils (or "worms" as Bowana calls them) to decorate the inside of this platter. We didn't get to play long. I'll wrap this one up this weekend and post pics of how I flip this guy, texture the bottom, add it's base, and maneuver this guy in and out of the form...then it's off to the big dry out.

Uh oh! The Bird's looking dangerous with that squirt bottle!

Looking forward to seeing the big platter. Nice job with the WORMS! I've got about 10 pieces (pendants and very small stuff) done.
I want to bring them over and hang out with yez, but I have a real bad cold right now. Don't want to make any more sickies!

Can't wait to see the platter, but it looks heavy enough to have a gravitational pull. Hangin' it will somehow involve steel, I'd guess.

Reminds me of that Giant plate

from Atlantis
back to the surface
in JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH!

I did this guy in 10th grade (with Pompeii(sp?) in mind) .



His name is Lava Man, and is about 2 ft. tall.
