She involved a lot of disked being made, and even chain mail being carved into her torso. a mix of glazes where combined to bring her to life and beading added after firing to give her a bit more pizzaz.
This is one of my warrior womenshe is up for sale on my Etsy site, get in quick whilst she lasts, as she is a one off, no two are ever alike.
I am so in love with this one, the BUTToned Up BUTT, made on a glorious white clay with fabulous purple and silver glazes used, topped with glass button flowers and fringing, what a statement piece this one is, I can not wait to see it hanging from a wall in someone’s home.
So the fun begins once again on a Thursday, time to get the hands dirty, the rings and nails full of clay and a smile in place.
This time around I had two mens mannequin bottoms to play with, who could resist really, not me that is for sure. These are made from a simple process of a slab rolled out and shaped over the buttocks (don’t forget to use glad wrap or spay with canola oil before putting the clay on), then a damp sponge taken over to for the contours more, then designs rolled out, or in this case a lace doily used then my little men and women drawn all over, can not forget the love heart tattoo though.
A closer look at the details on this one, yes those little men and women are quite cheeky.
See even on this one they get up to mischief.
So tell me what colours do you think I should play with on these two.
I have 35 decorations to make this year, up on previous years. This is a tradition that I have created for myself (mad idea with the number growing each year), so this year I had a go at making a penguin it was a dismal fail..
These will end up looking like diamonds with everyone’s initial on them and so far I have created eyes out of buttons and a moustache , am liking how crazy they are coming together.
A close up of one, stay tuned for more as I get to them.
