The art must be really good because I keep catching myself with a grimace on my face and an icky feeling as I scroll through the pages. The trade is coming closer and closer, WATCH OUT! Wendy

The world's ugliest mold made a pretty rough casting and it had a hidden undercut so I broke off the ring finger (the sculpt, not the sculptor). But it's clay, it goes back together - that's what clay does Here it is repaired and cleaned up but with no features or texture. I have to cut an inch off the bottom because it's too tall to fit my kiln



Maybe a progress shot later tonight, April 15th is a-comin'!

Wow, Mike... that is exciting... can't wait to see what you do next. And thankful it was the clay finger as opposed to the flesh and blood!

peace,
Jason <><

TikiDaye, thank you.
Cap'n, very nice.
Hewey, good start.

I added some hair to the lid and the back of the head last night, may have some time to start on the face today. Cut an inch off the bottom so it will fit in my kiln.

Cap'n Pharaoh just reminded me with his art that I need to sign my work and to put Tiki Swap 2010 somewhere on it (on the back for mine). This swap may be bigger than the menu swap. What will the next theme be and how big will it go? Hewey really started something fun, three cheers for Hewey. Wendy

Got some facework done, now to let it dry a bit and clean it up. The strings you see now are "placeholders". Buried in the clay, they will burn out in the kiln and hopefully leave channels for me to feed new strings through after the final glazing.




It really is hollow - has a straw hole in the top of the head now and should hold about 20 ounces (give or take)



I'm EXCITED!!! It's actually turning out like I envisioned This is my second attempt at sculpting a face (the other was a shrunken head too) Nice thing about shrunken heads is that, by nature, they are distorted and asymetrical - makes it easier for people like me.

Someone has to be the wrench in the works - or in this case, the wench--- I'll be going out of town April 16-25th.
I can bring my piece with me and send it from On The Road, but whoever sends to me, we'll have to work out a plan so
your piece is not sitting on my urban porch til I get backkkkk!

Hewey, I'm guessing you won't figure out the actual swap part until the end in case
more people jump in during the last week...
