Feline Deity - Harvest

This incredible pot is finally complete.  It is like some of the newer works being made now which are sculpted pottery without pushing it in.  This one features images of a feline or cat god/goddess which is holding ears of corn symbolizing the harvest.  The circular design behind the cat and the birds (with legs) were inspired by my visit to the Jacob Wrey Mould sculptures here in Central Park.   This work of art is extremely fragile.

New 360 pottery

The new pots feature classical thrown forms which are decorated 360 degrees on all sides, they also feature attachments of already bisqued work.
Very spiky.

cat and egg

Cat and egg will be ready to be fired very soon (next week), my extended drying process sometimes trys my patience but its better than pots without bottoms.  

Sculpting inside of pots

Hello all, so this summer I am working on a couple of projects, one of them was leaving the pot which I did rather uncomfortably, but now im working on sculpting inside of pottery, regular wheel thrown pots which are then broken open somehow or sliced through they are not pushed in which is simply leaning; its a more violent way to get surface area.  The following pictures are of the past couple of weeks work which involve a normal pot being sliced zig-zag and plants growing inside of it, there is a mythological plant of abundance which never stops fruiting and never stops produces endlessly.
