NO boogies up the nosie?


(thank you Cheri for the background tunes!)

So, I make this robot drawing a week or two ago and you saw how it looked on mugs and if you look below, and ignore the UP-NOSE shot, you are reminded of their awesomeness---I love them so much I kept the first for us, and so I made more and they are in the kiln today, but now I want to MAKE more and thought I would show you some of the process, the throwing the clay blob into a mug shape. I really like this simple out and in mug shape, which is new for me (not new to the world, just my work) and it makes a good shape for drinking and drawing of robots.

Soaked to the bone;
sink like a stone
I will take you home
It's not the first time;
it's not the worst crime
Our souls will be okay

YOU make it look simple, but I know it isn't easy. I never thought it was, but I definitely learned it last summer!

Every time I see one of your robots, the Mr. Roboto song runs through my head. :)

It was mesmerizing watching that mug come to life. Really... my mouth was hanging open. :)

That does not look easy! Making a ball of clay into a mug like that?! No way. I would just make a smashed ball of clay.
I LOVE THE ROBOT!!!!
