Celestial Flare by LitaMaxwell Celestial Flare by LitaMaxwell
My first actual graded ceramic piece (other than a fish from elementary school.) I'd never used glazes before, so I didn't realize that they would change colors when they touched at some places. The blue with white glaze has crystals in it that explode, producing the white splotches. I also didn't know it would run so badly. It's pretty funny that it bows out where the sun is, I love this piece even though I can't use it for anything.

Low fire clay and glazes.
Spring 2007 - Over fifteen hours.

You know I really like this. XD I am trying to think of what you could possibly use it for, but really, it's a piece of art and I'd personally feel bad putting anything inside of it or endangering it in any way. D:

XD I almost made a mini version of it, like a mug or something. Or, at least half the size of it. But it took so long to carve out that big. I don't want to think of how painful it will be to do smaller scale. XD

On the other hand, it might be easier to get away with mistakes on a smaller one? I work better on smaller scales because I see fewer of my errors. XD (Not in sculpting, I just fail all the way there.)

x3 Maybe I should make you a mini one then. And then you can stare at all the mistakes~~

It's very pretty! ^^ I think you should use it, if for nothing else, to at least hold pencils in/ art supplies.

> 3 < Thanks!! And I can't! It's to big. Even my paint brushes are eaten alive! I'll update it later with the size, silly me.
