Fuck this guy was awesome. Picked him up at 12 weeks old about 18 years ago. He didnt give a shit who you were...asleep on your lap within 30 seconds of you sitting down. Sent him away with his favorite thing to chew today.
Tomorronow, who else would make a drum for Porkskins out of pork skin? "THE PORKSKINNER" has stood up to days of beating despite your warning to be gentle ;) New strings for a guitar that has been waiting years for strings bought with love. A can of 1Shot fluorescent that I have been scared to buy\try to swirl with. If you have ANYTHING you want swirled/marbled let me know...I will do my best :) Thank you very much Tomorronow!
This was another experiment with techniques, firing times etc. There was never really a plan for the final product, but I knew I wanted to jumble opposites of the color wheel in a high fire, cut everything up and reassemble with primary color divisions. It turned out much oranger than expected, but I learned a lot so who cares....someone in my family will get a hideous 30 pound glass clock for xmas :P I forgot to take pics at certain stages, but you get the point. Ugg cant wait to get this thing out of my house.
We start with a lesson on why you should use tools and not fingers:
You can stack it any way you want, but every color flows as it wishes. Blood spatter makes the glass gods happy...
Playing around with a layout.
On the shelf and dammed up.
After a lot of coldworking I need to drill the hole for the clock mechanism, but otherwise its pretty much finished.
17yo loves any box any time..even when its about to take him to the vet.
I know my stuff is kindergarten amatuer compared to my fusing heroes like Moje etc, but I would like to share and hear constructive input regarding style and especially technique!
So I started with a full sheet of Bullseye 003126 swirly and 001114 deep royal blue. Everything was hand scored, cut, ground and polished. I didnt plan the project properly and I had to fire it twice more than I wanted to before slumping. There was a little devit, but nothing that really stands out.
Had to pull my last old school IBM model M kb out of the storage bin. The nnnnnnnnnnnnnn key kinnnnnnnda sticks
Anyone else have a love for these? Stocked up a decade ago and now Im on my last one.
They had just put this on the shelf at thriftown so Im guessing someone donated it right around 9/11. The wife and I are fans of puzzles but have never done one of these. Looks like I will need a bigger table. The table is 8.5'x4' for reference...this puzzle is huge!
Has anyone finished one, and if so any advice? Looks like it will be fun.
