Skulls, Clay, and Color

A while back, I traded Clay Time in the Studio for 300 small plastic colored skulls  Why?  Just look – how cool is this??  A whole entire drawer of gorgeous colored skulls!!!!

I have no idea what I’ll do with ’em, but they might have potential as embellishments on a voodoo doll, eh?

So, Graeme, the fellow I’m doing the swap with, came up and built a clay House / Ashtray combo.  He was SO meticulous, and his piece turned out beautifully.

He used a wild assortment of stamps to add some fabulous detail on the piece, and then once it was fired, he added color:

This was all brand new to him, and he did an absolutely stellar job.  He likes his piece so much, he’s keeping it in a cabinet and only bringing it out when he uses it.  He left feeling very pleased with his work, as he very much ought to!

    I think you both made a super trade. His project turned out beautifully. My advise…for what it’s worth…let it glow in the sun and use it as a bird feeder…and give up smoking.
