Here are some examples of my artwork and, as you can see, my prefered medium is clay. More specificaly, all of my works are made from terra cotta. I don't know what any of them "mean": I really just made things that I thought would be fun to make and/or to look at. Most of them are pretty scary and/or creepy, so don't look at them before bed or you might get nightmares. Be safe.
severed robot head!!!! :
This is my severed robot head, Gridiron II (pronounced grid-ear-on). I made the original head out of solid clay, then I made a plaster cast of it. This is the result of the second head I made from that cast (it is hollow, but still weighs about 600 pounds). As you'll see, the face of every copy I made is very different. This is because the face of the original head was pretty awful and I had to spend LOTS OF TIME fixing it before the fire.
Anyway, this head is slightly larger than life-sized - about 14" from the bottom of the neck to the crown of the head.
plastic surgery :
This sexy guy was based on
before plastic surgery pics (both male and female ones). Its about 11" high. Maybe I should have made an
a diseased head :
Another head made from the head cast. I used, like, 10 different glazes on this and the surface came out really irregular. Someone said it looks like it has a skin disease (and I agree). He's the same size as Gridiorn II.
an injured bunny(!!!!) :
This is a bunny I made. Its about 14" long and 9" high. Fortunately, a piece of is back broke off in the kiln, leaving me with an AWESOME piece of removable flesh. CUTE, RIGHT?!
About 13" high. He was spray painted pink after being fired, then I put in the details (eyes, lips, rosy cheeks) with some regular acrylic paint.
extra scary head :
This is the same size as the other heads. Also, that's piece of my hand. I made a plaster press mold of it.
