Got a bunch more pieces back from my ceramics adventures. These two cats are being good desk companions for me at the moment. They're quite big (for me) - the tall one is perhaps 6 inches high. I guess that's not really tall. Well. They're bigger than the last cat I made, which was about an inch and a half.
As always, the process is fascinating and a mystery. Both painted with exactly the same materials at exactly the same time, but one has a much softer, bled-out line than the other. Love this stuff.
A birthday gift for Lion, in case he finds himself missing the buildings of Alphabet City. Now on display next to our wooden half-a-brain. It's hard to get any sense of scale from these photos I realise, but that's a realistically sized brain, so the building is about 18" x 6", painted on wood. It's funny working with acrylics on a non-absorbent surface after so much time mucking about with inks and wet paper and so on. I like the way the paint resists being applied. You get all these stops and starts in the line. Or I do at least.
