Here Come The Dancing Bears!

Here Come The Dancing Bears!

After playing around with the movement and interaction of the rats, I wanted to do another couples piece. I like capturing the character’s still images as if these bears were dancing the night away. Clearly, they’re pros ;) Enjoy! If you’re having trouble viewing the clip, please click here. Check back soon to see what’s next!

The Rats come to life!

The Rats come to life!

I’m flexing my storytelling skills this week in creating a piece with two characters. I enjoy being able to move things around to get a different perspective… I guess that’s why I love 3D art – every angle shows something new :) Anyway, please enjoy my not so modest rats come to life in this week’s time lapse. *If...

Through the Fire, and into some Paint!

Through the Fire, and into some Paint!

The fish made it through the firing! Hurray! We did have one casualty before she even made it to the kiln, Angela, the first of the angels… (sigh) I made her a little too thin, and she cracked in a few places. All are fixable… I would be lost in life without duct tape and Superglue. Here they all...

Cookin’ up some Fish!

I’m a little twitchy this morning… as I just loaded the kiln and started the pre-heat process on the fish. I’m under a bit of a tight deadline and had to speed up the drying process for these guys, so please keep your fingers crossed that they survive their firing. I did ask around for some advise on how...

Angela Angel Fish

I’m ramping up for the Art Festival season here in Florida. And while thinking of my booth set up, I realized I didn’t have anything fun for the walls…. After a brainstorming session, (involving a glass of wine with some friends, and lots of ridiculous ideas) I landed on ceramic wall mount pieces. And what better than fish for...

New Bonobo… and a creepin’ kitty

New Bonobo… and a creepin’ kitty

Confession: I love listening to audios books when sculpting. And, I realize I may be a little late to the party on this one, but I started listening to Ape House by Sara Gruen, and love it (though, I love most of her books)! So, as I was finishing up Alexandra Alligator, I was listening to this story, and...

Here’s the second time lapse video of Alexandra. I did have help from a “Little” studio friend, keep your eyes peeled for her. Alexandra Alligator’s sculpting process is now complete, and she will dry for the next few weeks. From there, she’ll burn burn burn… in the kiln :) Stay posted for her kiln firing and final paint. So...
