This bowl is freakin' amazing up close, I saw it a while ago. It's BIG, like giant salad bowl huge. If anybody can make it happen, Babs can, but this is one tricky project.

Good luck, Babby, this would look freaky with some high-proof rum as a lake of fire swirling around.

(Can you mix dry ice and rum on fire, or does the dry ice gases put it out????)

All I can say is WOW! That looks like a hell of a lot of work. But WOW it looks like it is going to be amazing when you get it all done.

Thank you Kahu...The stage I'm at in this project is where I have the most fun playing in clay. For me wet, and leather hard clay has the best feel - look to it. Love it.

Mudslinger....thanks for following along...I'll either spank this clay, or it will spank me....ya never know what the limits are unless you push them. peace

Uh! amazing project, is looking great!!
[quote]Clarita, if your out there? This is an example of what one would want to dry slowly...those feathers are much thinner than the rest of the head and will want to dry first...the trick is to not let them do that. Trying to mold this guy would not be possible for me...plus, hand building is more fun. [quote]
Oh sorry I didn't saw this before! Yes i get what you are telling me!
And I tell you, if I ever get there, I would love to go make some clay original piece there with you (and Simon), hope you invite me !!

Well, it's Billy the Crud! My cosa your cosa brother. I hear tell you just picked a shit load of 6'ers up...sorry I missed that run man...

Clarita, Why sure I would love to have you over to the studio to play in some clay any day. You really do need to get over here for a visit to this Country. I think you would have a blast...I know that Simon would LOVE to have you over too!

Built just a little more tonight, spent time taking off clay on the inside of the creatures. The goal is to make them look heavy when they are really light...if the birds can be thinner. Less weight on the rim.



Thought you might find this interesting. In order to make this clay easier to work and keep it moist on the bottom without worry, I decided to line the plastic form bowl with a trash bag. Then I placed the (now smooth underside) clay bowl back into the form. Now I can work the top side and not have to worry about the bottom side. There is a hole in the bottom of the form big enough to allow the base to hang through...I then suspended the whole thing on top of this glass bowl so that there would be no pressure at all on the base while I am working he top section. Top and bottom will both need to dry together.



More progress later on....

AMAZING bowl!
Totally loved seeing how you put this together. My fingers are crossed for you as you take the epic journey through dry-out land and the Great Kiln. Keep posting pics!
