This isn't part of January's theme, but my teacher wanted us to do "clockworks".

A question on kilns

Started by Kenneth A. Haines. Last reply by sarah maria du toit Nov 10, 2013. 1 Reply

Since I am mostly working air dry clay and some polymer I am interested in getting a kiln, however I have no idea what to look for, there are so many variations. What would be a good start for a small area? I have never done any ceramics, I understand that that may require a different set up!! Not sureREAD MORE

I love sculpting, among other things....

Started by Kenneth A. Haines. Last reply by Thaneeya McArdle Jun 19, 2013. 1 Reply

Mostly I like odd things, these I call Alien Trees, all made with air dry clay and painted, only drawback is they are very fragile and chip easily. any ideas on how to strengthen or perhaps a different medium. I would eventually like to get a kiln, but knowledge in that area is lacking.READ MORE

Anamorphic Installations - Cool Classroom Idea?

Started by Thaneeya McArdle Apr 18, 2013. 0 Replies

This could be a fun idea for a Sculpture Class... Get all the students to work together to create an anamorphic installation that fills a whole room, similar to the work of Bernard Pras, which you can see here: http://creativegreed.com/bernard-pras-anamorphic-painting.htmlHe uses items like clothing, driftwood and other objects and arranges them strategically around a room so that when you look at the installation from…READ MORE

This is a half mask I made. I would appreciate some helpful critiques

Started by Kaitlin Emerson. Last reply by Thaneeya McArdle Apr 3, 2013. 3 Replies

This half mask is made out of clay. This is not wearable or able to stank up-right by itself. The glazes are suppose to look nature-like. READ MORE

From now on I shall be posting more and more Works In Progress, as WIPs could be of interest to other sculptors too. Finished artworks can be seen at my own site http://www.pulpart.net. I love your comments and likes though, but the Sculpture group is in my opinion the place to help each other with all acpects of the creative process. Items of general interest could for instance be how to do mold making if you need multiples (I include a photo of salted…READ MORE

3D Pen

Started by Thaneeya McArdle. Last reply by Anton Abela Mar 15, 2013. 3 Replies

Wouldn't it be neat to use a pen to draw in the air and create a 3D sculpture? It's possible! A company called WobbleWorks has created "the world's first 3D printing pen". You can read an overview here in this CNN article: http://whatsnext.blogs.cnn.com/2013/02/21/a-3-d-pen-that-lets-you-draw-objects-in-the-air/WobbleWorks launched a …READ MORE

I use these celcom blocks...~ This one is a LARGE Thermalite trench block~ blocks to improvise on between drawings they are a great 3D canvas for ideas, i first started using them in the late 70's and believe i was the first to give them an aesthetic value.
BE CAREFUL THE DUST IS CARSONEGENIC! Always work outside or be masked up, i have spent years perfecting the right tools and fixatives of my own design to use on this material, if anybody is interested in using this medium as a "canvas" i may be able to advise you and offer some tips!
Thanks for your attention!
