The Wheel Deal


I'm actually making things! WHAAAAAAAT....

These last pieces are fresh off the wheel. My teacher told me to just leave the crap on the bottom until the piece is leather hard and then carve a nice bottom out. So these will sit here probably until Friday morning. The top ones I finished tonight.


Self-care Stuffed Objects/Monsters

I started making felt stuffed objects/monsters in one of my classes as a self-care exercise. This was today's work:

From the front you can see a little pattern that, to me, symbolizes me with a bunch of pressure and stuff pushing down on me.

I decided to add cones to make it stand up like a table... no reason, just thought it would be interesting to sew on cones.

Then I turned it over and it kind of looks like a monster! One yellow eye, one peach eye, and an orange tail.

This monster is a little grouchy.

I love making these weird stuffed things! It's also fun to make sculptural pieces... this semester is all about the third dimension.
