WALLACE & GROMIT CHAT » CERAMICS
The glaze on the eyes ran a bit, but that's nothing "eye" can control.
aww- AWESOME I think the squirell looks a bit crazier and cuter with the colour run
Super job iantimothy great sculpting skills
so cool - r u selling them lol
They look fantastic! Looks far more fun than we had to do in art class! Also, I can see that squirrel being in one of your animations! He looks your style ;D
I have a bird nest bowl, a cow mug, a corn dish, a chicken plate and a train box, coming out of the kiln tomorrow.
haha, Love the abraham Lincoln!!
Also- I loved your pun
glad someone caught that, because it was a "cornea" joke.
Ha I got that one!
haha, your too funny Ian
I like that teapot a lot. That greenish glaze looks really good.
That looks really good, how'd you glaze it? Is the cup part wheel thrown? or is it hand built?
The cup is thrown on a wheel but the rest I made in pieces hand,arm,joints etc which were then left over night untill leather hard then cut and assembled with slip and the glazes were Duncan brush on.....a bit messy
Well it looks really good, do you have a class or just do them on your own.
Well I became an Art technician just over a year ago in a school and its one of my duties to keep the pottery room clean (very hard with all that muddy stuff they use!!) so this job has re-ignited my interest in pottery from years ago and I have invested in a potters wheel and a small kiln so yes to both of your questions.
It feels like christmas every time you open up a kiln....I can't wait till the morning to open up my glaze firing which finished almost an hour ago....far to hot at the moment! its at about 800 deg c hot enough to remove my eye brows etc if I were stupid enough to open it
I had a ceramics class this year, and it was my first time with ceramics, and I really enjoyed it. We had two kilns in the classroom, a big one and a small one, and I know what you mean, I love when the kiln opens and all that finished stuff comes out, it's great.
Keep going, your animation sculpting skills make you look like a natural potter
thats soo cool i wish these were in shops
Cavor I would most certainly buy one of those W&G Mechanic Arm mugs! Its AWESOME!!!!
Thanks guy's........Maybe I will have to talk to the people at Aardman and see about marketing them!!
Please do! PLEASE do!
Cavor- That mug looks absolutely AWESOME!
Thanks for the comments on me mug.....I think I will have smaller rivets on the next one I make
Can I have this one?
I haven't spoken to Aards yet...but to produce these mugs in a saleable volume I would have to make plaster moulds and slip cast them.......so its not that simple!!
Maybe I will have to see if I can donate a mug to one of the W&G contest's for a prize
I was joking by the way hehe (I still want one though of course) As a competition prize would be an awesome incentive to enter this month or whenever (If ever) they use it as a prize. Anyways, as I said before, stunning work Cavor! Hehe that rhymes
Nice work Vincent........have you seen the work of Kate Malone it might be of interest to you
I went to a gallery in Manchester and saw her enormous pineapple pot!
Amazing work Vincent! I am guessing there are quite a few people online right now...
Nice! Where did you get the green cutting board from out of interest???
The Works (book shop) some years back josh
