I also just kinda keep making more of these ceramic forms... I don't even know what going on anymore. I just picture these cracking in the firing so I'd rather have extra ready. So now I have two of those all bone dry in the big baily kiln. Before I bisque I'm gunna throw some sand under there for the shrinkage.
I picture the insides of these forms being filled with different materials, like mesh fabric, latex, chain. I see things being stretched, the void being filled as I like to say. I'm actually stoked to see these ceramic pieces alongside my wood piece.
With another one on the way ! I just need to smooth her out, then i cut them into four pieces, flip em over and smooth out the coils, then I place my three kiln shelves down and put the four parts back together on the shelves so I can transfer them into the kiln on the shelves, not try to move the form.
A mixed-media man such as myself is really gunna get into some woodworking. Sorry to use my ceramics blog to discuss sculpture but I must be honest about what I am spending time on.
its been super cool to work with new power tools. This was a solid block of wood ! I used the band saw first to start visualizing the curves, then the drill press to get the holes started, my favorite tool was probably the die grinder it really threw up the wood and helped me map out the curves, and finally I drilled some holls and then used the rotary tool to make the hole in the center !
Since this point I've just been using the rasp and sanding my little ass off. My plan is to flock this piece with black flock, then I want to make my own chain link that is in the same infinity shape and hang it from the ceiling for presentation.
