Shop-ping Today

Monkey sculpture by Jim.
Every time I go into the shop he has climbed onto someplace
different that the last place I saw him...

He will go onto an elephant sculpture that Jim made awhile ago.
The monkey will be holding an umbrella to keep the water off his head
from the elephant's fountain feature. 

Making a Chocolate Tree Leaf Mold.

Jim pours in potter's plaster onto leaf,
a bit different than plaster of paris.
Once the mold hardens up I can make
a porcelain serving dish from the mold, or 2.
Want one?

A Wonderful Find

We took on the job of emptying a friends storage barn
 and found this frame tucked deep into spider webs.
Jim put a seat and backing slats on- then refinished the woodwork.
Stunning! Now off to the fabric store to decide
on a design, texture, color,
hummm any suggestions?

Concrete Leaf Workshop

We had a concrete leaf making workshop
before the frost killed all my giant Elephant Ear Leaves.
Everyone had fun and went home with a pretty concrete leaf.

Pretty little pretty little pretty little giraffe eyes.....

Jim is circling the giraffe eye with adhesive
in preparation of placing the ceramic eye he made.

Jim has to hold the eye in place for 10 minutes
for the glue to harden up.
Now, onto gluing the tiles on.
Do you like the giraffe's blue mohawk?

Creative Fires

Mike, our pottery instructor, is having fun in Sunday class.

Nice when he can have fun with us!
One of Jimmy's giraffe eyes is out of the kiln, Yay!

Giraffe gets ears!

We made the 3 mile trip in one piece.

mosaic tiles will be cemented onto his wire armature.

Clay Class Raku Firing Day

Mike is arranging pieces to fit into 
the Raku Kiln for firing. 

The kiln is heated to a high temperature 
(about 1,800 °F) then turned off. 
Once opened, the pottery is handled
quickly and carefully while hot!
The heating process took 45 minutes.

 The pottery piece is placed in a barrel
filled with newspaper, covered, and allowed to smoke.
Raku has unpredictable results which u
sually produces intense colors.

Everyone has a good time working on their art.

Mike gave us a demonstration on making a plaster mold.
