OMG, They're SOOO CUTE!

I did a low-fire glaze firing the other day and have been too busy here to post these guys but aren't they the most creepy/adorable things you've ever seen?! 



I had such fun with their gestures and expressions, and I really can't wait to make more!

I've been puttering with different kinds of goody bags for the little pumpkin people, as well. Below are the before and after pics of this little charmer as a completely creepy-cute trick-or-treater!

Atmosphere for Sale

 


It feels like every single one of these pictures has a creepy backstory, possibly narrated by Tom Waits.

I'm heading over there right now to get myself one of those delicious Polaroids!

WIP - Pumpkin People!

I'm still chugging along on making fun stuff for Midsummer Scream. As I've mentioned before, the ideas for pieces are flowing so much faster than I have time to execute them, so I have to stop myself from exploring a bunch of different directions at once and make a decision to make blocks of them, instead.

This week is a return to my pumpkin people. 



I finished one yesterday, the rest await their hands and treat bags/sacks when I get to it this morning.

And yes, the above will ultimately be treat bags.



This little guy has just charmed the daylights out of me. I feel like he's saying, "Yes, I'm creepy, but it's just the way I was made! I'm actually very sweet!" Sort of like a creepy Jessica Rabbit.


I'll be making more of these guys coming soon! I'm already looking ahead to the glazing/decorating phase!

It's a Process

Just a big ol' photo dump! You guys know the drill by now! 




OK, small explanation here. These guys are all for the Raku firings I do. They get a special type of glaze.


Homemade Raku kiln, below.





The guys above before the excess carbon was scrubbed off after I pulled them out of the post-firing reduction.


These cuties are scrubbed and ready to go! I may end up doing a "mug shot" shoot this weekend.

I actually had to stop before all the firings were done on Sunday, due to simple exhaustion. Multiple Raku firings in one day really take it out of me. But the results are delightful!
