Burned into me head

That didn't happen.
And if it did, it wasn't that bad.
And if it was, that's not a big deal.
And if it is, that's not my fault.
And if it was, I didn't mean it.
And if I did...
You deserved it.

So I finally pulled the trigger on molding and casting this relief sculpture. I built up the mold wall with clay and did my best to seal the bottom to the board and all the seams. 

Here is the first layer of silicone. It is clear to me now that I have put on the first layer of silicone. I made the mold way to big!! LOL I guess this is just one of the many lessons that I will learn along my path to creating art. I will get another layer on tonight and hope to cast the first resin this weekend! Fingers crossed, that everything will work out> 

Glazed, Fired, Finished!

So I picked up me ceramic sculpture last night, She was glazed and fired. I am relatively happy with how she turned out. 
I wish the glaze had modeled and crazed a bit more. Also the blue that I put on her really didn't show as much as I had wanted. But all in all for my first time working with this material and also this method. I am happy.
