This is my third attempt at the fruit bowl shaped like female genitalia with teeth.

Fruit Bowl Project 2

This is my second attempt at the fruit bowl in the shape of female genitalia.  it's much smaller and I've gotten further in the process, but I haven't decided whether or not to tear it down yet. 

I decided to take this apart and reuse the clay for another iteration of the same project.





Fruit Bowl Project 1

I have a commission to make a fruit bowl in the shape of female genitalia.

This was my first attempt.  I ended up destroying it and reusing the clay.










An important part of the fruit bowl is the enormous clitoris with an eyeball.

Purple Worm 4

This is another is a series of three new Purple Worm sculptures.  This one has a reddish coloration.





Purple Worm 3

I have a commission to make a Purple Worm sculpture and I made three of them so that I could offer a choice and also so that I have several more available in case anyone else wants one.  I had made two purple worms in 2012 and I'm picking up with the numbering at #3.  The purple worm is a classic Dungeons & Dragons monster.

Tarot Angel 2: Michael

This is part of a series of depictions of the Hebrew archangels from the Rider-Waite Tarot deck.  This one is from the Temperance card and is meant to be the archangel Michael.  There is one more, the archangel Gabriel on the Judgment card, but I don't know if the series is worth continuing.


The Rider Waite Temperance card:


Eye Cup #35

This is the last of this batch of slab cups.  I managed to sell two of them during this Festivus/Winter Solstice gift-giving season, along with a few other items, so I might have room to make more.  This one has a ring of molded cat eyes on a strip of clay around the center.

Eye Cup #40

This is Eye Cup #40.  It has a molded, fanged mouth and cylindrical eyes.  It's not quite even on top.  I don't think I have come any closer to reliably making symmetrical slab pots.  I found a slide show from a middle school in Texas that details the process.  I'm going to try to follow the directions.

Tarot Angel 1: Raphael

This is the archangel Raphael from The Lovers card in the Rider Waite Tarot.  I did a Tarot Devil so I thought I would try a few Tarot angels as well. 


The Lovers card






It also reminds me of the Godspell logo.

Tiny Microscope

This is a tiny clay microscope which was practice for the microscope used in the Laboratory Tardigrade piece.  I made three of them but the other two broke.




PAN

This is the horny goat god Pan. 


Eye Cup #37

This is #37 in a series of slab mugs with molded eyes.  This one has three large blue eyes.  It also has eyelashes made from the seed pods of the screwbean mesquite plant.
