Also the rosary-style Enki necklace I made the other night from lapis and oven clay, and lapis bracelets xD. I wanna remake the pendant for the rosary, so it’s two sided and better quality after I get the hang of things.
I’m feeling the Lapis. Sumerian gemstones in general. I wanna perhaps make a whole set based on the stone/metals/and loosely based on their designs… Maybe also an Ereshkigal necklace…
Here’s some more pointless art I’m posting here because I don’t have an art blog (also it kind of relates). I made this little Phidippus audax out of oven-bake clay. It took me about three hours (including baking time. It has an armature of tin foil and wire because haha why not?
I am so proud of this! It’s one of the best sculptures I’ve made and one of my favorite pieces of jewelry I’ve made. It’s also my practice for the smaller ones I will be making for the giveaway.
Kettle (yugama), Japan,
cast iron, hailstone pattern, 19th century. Hanging or placed on a stool above
the clay oven of a house, this kettle was an essential household item and an
object of pride for the peasants. Its worth lay in its technical and physical
ruggedness and its pockmarked decoration which, as Charlotte Perriand remarked,
made the water sing.
