Homesis: The invisible Element

Homesis: The Invisible Element was created as a demonstration for the public as they visited my studio during the “Whatcom Artists Studio Tour” this October 2017.

I had no Idea as to what would appear and am greatly astonished and pleased with the end articulation.

Homesis is made using homemade clay with fiber and paper mixed into the clay body. I basically fill my scrap bucket mix in fiber and paper and fill the bucket with water and then let it slake indefinitely. The one problem I am having is that both the fiber and paper impede the surface no matter how  I try to smooth the surface. I am going to try a skin of porcelain over the skirt of the next bceramic figure.

I have found a wonderful slip recipe for the fabrics. Three ingredients. Secret!

I only use cotton fabric, because it is the least likely to disintegrate after bisque firing.

Using fabric in slip is not a fools game. Trial and much error for sure.

I study the human head and face almost daily; However, when I actually make a ceramic figurative sculpture I use only my imagination and this is why all my faces are unique and unto themselves.

  • 249094 976933This style is steller! You most surely know how to maintain a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own weblog (effectively, almostHaHa!) Amazing job. I genuinely loved what you had to say, and far more than that, how you presented it. Too cool! 354684

    • Well Hello back at you!
      Thank you for your kind words, always appreciated for sure!
      I have never considered myself as one who has wit, just too serious I guess.
      I love working in ceramic and with words.
      Have just had a rest for ten days and am ready to hit the studio again.
      Kind regards M.

  • Hi there! This blog post couldn’t be written any better! Looking
    at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!

    information to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a good read.
    I appreciate you for sharing!

  • I enjoy what you guys tend to be up too. This kind of clever
    work and reporting! Keep up the very good works guys I’ve
    added you guys to my blogroll.

  • Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  • Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your
    website on my iphone during lunch break. I love
    the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my phone ..

    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, fantastic
