THE PARODICAL SON IS HERE.

After weeks of sculpting, planning and such. I’ve finished my Zabuza figure. All the parts are separate and I don’t plan on glueing them. I am still looking for a matte glaze that will not give my sculpture the shiny look (I want it matte af) and…..odd thing is….I’m planning on making another.

SO VOTE FOR THE NEXT SEVEN SWORDSMEN TO SCULPT AMD LEAVE THEIR NAME IN THE TAGS!!!!!!

I had the pleasure to “illustrate” a beautiful and insightful article by David Brooks that appeared in last Sunday’s NYT Review. Many thanks to Art Director Aviva Michaelov. 

The first piece is a sculpture made out of polymer clay and painted with acrylic, the second is a ceramic sculpture glazed in matte white and colored in the computer. I went to drop off the pieces at the New York Times building in Times Square, and Tony Cenicola photographed them in the studio . It’s the first time I have been commissioned a sculpture as an illustration; amazing experience!

theme thursday: small ceramic planter finds

terra cotta succulent planters by huseyinartik

more planters for your house or apartment or porch or balcony or desk … see, you can put these babies ANYWHERE. huseyinartik’s varied styles are ideal for an instant collection. i love the matte white glaze accents with the terra cotta myself, but they’ve got other colors and shapes to love, too!

Finally gave up on painting this, scanned and completed it in photoshop.  Painting matte vs. shiny white glaze, and ovals in perspective, is hard without a real thing in front of you.

Dream image; white-on-white patterned vases and one black-on-white patterned vase tucked among them.  In the dream the patterns flowed into each other from certain angles.
