Zero, awesome. Mike- looks zonkers- in the best possible way.

TJ, looking great- as Wendy said, detail is amazing. This guy has developed a sudden interest in TC- and this Art Swap in particular.... (mostly TJ's entry, of course)-

Weird.

Like that painting Zero. It could also be hung on the wall with the corners up like a diamond.
Jones, love that texture in the carved out areas.

Here's the update on the Anthropologist Stew Cannibal Bowl. Last week I started glazing it- used 7 glazes to put details into the limbs, fingernails, hiking boots, shoelaces, and socks.

I had tested a lot of my glazes on this black clay body, wasn't too thrilled with how they came out- it seemed the clay would suck out any gloss in a usually-high gloss glaze. I decided to take a risk and use a white underglaze on the interior of the bowl to help the top glaze come through a bit more. My plan had always been to leave the outside of the kettle unglazed- this clay fires to a rich black when it's fired. I let the white underglaze dry, then grabbed a different jar of glaze and started coating the inside...

Oops! Having already done all of the details on the outside of the bowl, I accidentally used the same glaze for the interior layer as the hiking boots!

I used a sponge and removed all of the "root beer" glaze, along with the white underglaze. I was laughing, but it took a while. Once it was all gone, I left it out to dry, then painted the underglaze on once again.

Then added the "correct" glaze on top of the white.


I had also added extra glaze under where the hand had fallen off the bottom of the bowl when bisque fired. My fingers were crossed, not having used glaze to fuze broken pieces that had fallen apart during firings (though Mike and Wendy assured me that it would work). Today I went back to the clay studio, slightly concerned how things would work out.

The repair had worked, the glaze colors looked great. First look:

Side view: hands on one side, and hiking boots on the other, act as the "legs" for this bowl:

Close up: Hiking boots:

The black clay can have some strange side effects- the skin color was not supposed to look like a zombie grey- though I'd like to say that the anthropologist has been "stewing" for a while. The fingernails did turn out well:


Only one issue w/ the interior glaze- not sure if it was due to the white underglaze, but some of the glaze cracked off as I examined the piece (visible in an earlier picture). I decided to use a dremel and grind off some of the glaze- due to this fact I'd say that this bowl should be used for display ONLY, not for drinks.



I am working on one last addition to the bowl, and may be adding some acrylic paint to make the edges of the bowl interior more "finished." The grinding left a slight white mark along the edge.

In any case, it was a fun and interesting process, hope you- or whoever gets this- enjoys.

TikiAno, is that your 3-legged dog?

My mug survived firing with no explosions, whew!


Covered the eucalyptus base and the beetle with a good coat of Envirotex resin. I think it will take several days to cure. The upright dowel goes inside the "bamboo" pole to hold the mug to the base.

Mike, wow, looks great- can't wait to see it all mounted. I'd definitely leave the resin for as long as possible for it to cure.

Yes, that's Dreyfus, and he's completely nuts.

TikiAno, so glad your fixes are working out. Your 3 legged dog seems so happy I have to know the story behind that.

Speaking of missing legs and cannibals. Dr Stanley Livingston once came upon a one legged man in the wilds of Papua New Guinea and asked the villagers how the man lost his leg. They explained that the man was a captive from another tribe, that the war party had been ambushed on their way home and this captive had saved the lives of all the war party by fighting heroically. "So he lost his leg as a result of the battle?" Dr Livingston asked. The villagers told him that the man did not lose his leg in the battle, in fact he had later saved the tribal chief by rushing into a burning hut and carrying the chief out on his back. "Wow!" said Dr Livingston "Did he lose his leg in fire?" No, the villagers explained, he survived the fire unscathed. "Well how, then, did he lose is leg?" The Chief said "After all he had done for us, it didn't seem right to eat him all at once!"
