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 20, 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: 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 4, 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 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: launched a …READ MORE

My first project that started my theme with cardbord. I made the chair using industrial cardbord tubes and hot glue. the chair is useable despite the disbelife of the other students. i would like to ask for other opinion and thoughts of what i could do to make future projects more interesting.

This is a soft sculpture doll I made at a fun event I attended recently. I wanted to bring one of my favorite paintings to life, and had a blast making this simple recreation of "Reaching For Her Heart". The painting is in my paintings portfolio if you're curious to see the source for my inspiration : 

Comment by Suzanne Vadnais Monson on January 20, 2013 at 6:20pm

I would love to know how you made these! I would like to take the sugar sculpture idea and make some fun valentine's day gifts...hearts with decorative icing would be fun too!

Comment by Thaneeya McArdle on January 20, 2013 at 5:00pm

To get our Show & Tell started, I would like to show you these 3-D sugar skulls that I made last year:These are sugar skulls decorated with coloring icing and embedded objects. They were fun to make. If anyone's interested in learning more about them I can start a discussion about sugar skulls in our group forum.
