It's a Lynx - Not a Cat.

And the lynx continues...

I finally finished the thing and it is currently slow drying and hopefully heading into the bisque fire kiln this weekend. Now I just need to worry about glazing it without ruining all my work. I'm kind of thinking of just doing an oxide with a white glaze. But I kind of want to do bronze too. I don't know.


Lynx Revisited

My lynx is making progress. I want this thing to be done and I'm having a really hard time deciding how to glaze it. All white? White with gold? Sand and black? Red?


Rainbows and Traffic

Last was a late one because we threw a surprise birthday party for my friend Piper. It was also a Halloween costume party so that added an extra element of awesomeness. I was a dirty old man/flasher. My friends pointed out that I really enjoy dressing up as gross males (last year I was a caveman named Org). I never realized it before, but it's true, I do like dressing up as gross males. It's just easier to look totally weird if I put on a beard.

The next day I was driving home to Shrewsbury to visit with the fam and watch Game 3 of the World Series (Go Sox!). The drive was horrible - so much traffic for no reason at all - on construction, no accidents. I left at 11:15am and got home at 6:3o. It is normally a 3.5 hour drive. The only good thing was that I was able to swing by IKEA and pick up some photo frames, and I also saw the HUGEST rainbow I have ever seen in my life. People were pulling over on the side of the highway (I stopped twice). It was a full arch and you could see from one end to the other.


Kinda Creepy of Me

I was walking over to my storage unit today and totally saw a girl wearing one of my bags over on like 29th and 10th Ave. It was a bag I sold out of a couple years ago - the Rad Bag- so it is vintage now!

It made me pull out my Rad Bag and start sporting it around town. I forgot how much I liked it.

The kinda creepy part: I took a photo of the girl from behind when she was crossing the street. If this is you let me know!


Lynx Attack!

I've been taking ceramics classes at Choplet on Grand Street in Williamsburg. My first project was a snail coin bank (no photos yet - it's being glaze fired right now) - that one was just a warm-up. My current project is a lynx mask wall decoration. I have a minor obsession with lynx. Iberian lynx to be exact. It's a pretty difficult project because I have a very specific image in my head. The eyes are really tricky - these photos were taken before I ripped out the left eye and moved it closer to the nose. I realized that it was starting to look a little like an alien. My goal is to make this perfect and then make a mold of it so I can make duplicates. Or should I say "duplicats". Wocka wocka wocka.
