Slab-Built Clay Mask

Ceramic Mask Making

The night before our big Boston snow storm I got to sneak in a few hours at the pottery studio. Granted, I spent 2.5 hours cleaning up and organizing the glaze room because I just couldn’t help myself –I made new glaze labels! I saved about 30 minutes to throw on some black mason stain for my mask and quick, sketchy cups.

Clay Mask Making

I have been wanting to make masks for quite a number of months now, probably since early last year. Here is my first attempt at a ceramic mask.

Ceramic Artist Yuri Fukuda

Found this gorgeous work of ceramic art over on ShareSomeCandy. The artist is Yuri Fukuda. I just love imagining how this functional bit of artwork is created. It’s so visually satisfying and frankly, I just want to touch it. I might even stick pencils in it… or fill it with sand and light incense in it. Getting exciting just thinking about it…

More Clay Faces

Practice, practice! Just playing around with a new clay head I shaped… I like painting and drawing on the face the best. That’s when it starts to have more of a character (or caricature about it).
