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 head......lol.....thanks 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.
