Tidal Sapphire: I'm not sure if I invented it, but I don't remember ever seeing anyone else ever offset a stone like this. The band was cuttlefish cast, and the stone is pear/teardrop shaped, both sapphires. The idea was to homage the Gulf waters and it's beaches. What do you think?
He he! Yeah, carrying on with my obsession. Don't quite remember what the source was for this one otherwise.
Made from red clothing leather, gold coated suede and red dyed tooling leather. Entirely hand sewn and assembled (yes, my fingers are sore!) Featuring my very own Arc Reactor (!) and EL wire. Took just under 2 weeks, and will take a longer over-shoulder strap too.
COMISSION SLOTS ARE NOW OPEN!! PLEASE MESSAGE ME FOR MORE INFORMATION IF YOU WISH TO BUY ONE.
i used taupe hemp twine to created this beautiful gemstone choker.
starting from the center is a small donut aventurine gemstone bead as the focal. dangling below that i used autumn jasper nuggets. out on each side of this i used several different patterns to create the look for it and added in some aventurine round beads and moss agate nugget beads.
this was finished off with strings on each side for closure and adjustment. but if you would like me to add a different closure to it please contact me before purchase so that we can discuss it.
this measures from knot to knot 16" long and 3/4" wide will adjust with the ties bigger if needed
After forging some spoons I had an urge to make a fork and a knife companied with a bigger spoon. These went as present for my friend on his 30th birthday. The fork took some time to make but wasn't as nasty as I had suspected. Again, the material is stainless steel so these are completely usable on daily basis.
Thrown and altered charcoal fired stoneware cone 11+~
High fired stoneware. "Charcoal fired" refers to a firing process developed by Philip Cornelius [link] in which wares are dry stacked in a kiln without shelves, fired to cone 11+. Mesquite charcoal is introduced to the kiln at cone 8 and 11. The goal is to reproduce the surface effects of a wood fired kiln, but in the convenience of a gas kiln.
This piece is called "Raku" <<Not raku fired>> (the Chinese character carved into the surface) 楽 means "easy" or relaxing in Japanese.
So yeah, it turns out I also do ceramics. Other than a few half-arsed practice sculptures that were not even remotely relevant to this, this is my first proper attempt.
The idea is that you would replace one of your bathroom/shower tiles for this one and appear to have a surreal man crawling out your wall. The idea was some miracle on the spot inspiration that came into my head when I was told I could do anything I want as an outcome for my ceramics exploratory stage final peice in College.
I'm quite pleased with it, buuut, there are a few heavy flaws: I used the wrong glaze, the tile is messy, the anatomy is a little off, the clay sunk a bit when firing so it wont sit well as an installation, and, obviously, I accidently broke the fingers off. I'd like to try again and fix all the problems, but I don't think I'll get that chance anytime soon.
