My final projects for ceramics class
The Cookie Jar behind the mask!
Well, I have to tell you, I've never received a comment that one of my faces looked like a corporate "fat cat" before! I guess that will go down in the book as my weirdest so far. Anyway, I ended up changing the face anyway, not sure if it's still a businessman or not anymore... My other piece to that project, a chimp, was supposed to wear the fat cat as a mask and peek out from it, sort of a statement that behind every happy man lies an ape. But the mask didn't fit on the chimp, and ended up going from a bust to a cookie jar, per the requests of my children. They like him, and so he will not end up as so much yard art like so many of my other sculptures have. The reworked face is shortly destined to become a Welcome sign, the face surrounded by leaves and flowers. Somewhat of a suitable ending to that corporate entity, eh? They are both far from being completed, but it takes several weeks to finish a piece, and class ends in 3 weeks, so we have to start the final project now. Below are photos of the before and after for the mask, and my newly completed cookie house. While you don't have to comment if you don't want to~~~ I don't know how anyone feels about my work most of the time, but if you do comment I love those honest reviews!
