2010 Elepunk

I purchased some new books on clay and steampunk and am totally inspired to get my hands sticky again. This is my first creation (worth posting a photo of) for 2010.

Christi F. has a new awesome book out and this elepunk was inspired totally from her piece in the book with just a couple of changes and some help from a fellow "clayer" who gave me a tip on how to get the heavy trunk and the big ears to stay on his little to her my piece is strong... I still have to attach a chain to his ear and monocle, and add just a smidgin of patina. If he changes a lot I will post another "photo". On the top of his head is a belt and buckle which is not quite noticeable.

This piece is going to an elephant collector so I hope she likes him.

And what's next.......... ahhhhhh, come back and see. I can hardly wait to start.

Love your Elepunk. Can't wait to see him all finished (with chain and patina) I'm a big fan of CF too, and love all her books.

About Me

My photo
Bend, OR, United States
I have recently started some new artistic journeys. A slight branch in the road from my first love which is painting. I am hoping to combine my painting abilities with a bit of mixed media to stretch my creativity and think outside the box. I am also doing quite a bit of jewelry design and love the steampunk assemblage although I also love creating jewelry using handmade glass lampwork. Hopefully my journey and the information/photos on this blog will inspire others to think outside the box. Please check out my other blog and my Etsy site by going to my website. Thanks for stopping by....
