:::: One of the last 1000 Major Jugs By a lifetime Potter/Sculptor ::::


Title: " The Devils Steam Powered Robot"
(.................(Monkey Jug Style)


Comment:: There was so much evil to be done in the world that the devil couldn't keep up with it all by himself. The legion of lesser demons couldn't be trusted to carry out the Devils orders so he cooked up a batch of robots to do his bidding. The thing that the devil has in abundance is heat so he made them steam powered.

This little devil has lots of detail from his riveted base to his trident antenna (so he can get his orders direct from old Beelzebub himself ) . The only parts on him that aren't clay are the antenna and the glass eye. There is lots of detail . Notice the rivets screws and even countersunk screws on the bezel around his mouth . The tip of his nose looks to be worn smooth. Probably from sticking it into others peoples business so often.
He was all hand-thrown and sculpted. Then he was glazed with a metallic, grungy ,bronze/black lava glaze with some extra copper thrown in. He was high-fired. Then refired twice with metallic lusters to accentuate the old weathered robot look. The inside is glazed with a lead-free, food safe glaze. He is the second in a series of "Steampunk" robot jugs I have in the works. Check back for more.
I spent the last 7 years doing junk sculpture so this guy is kind of a natural extension of that process except he is made of clay pieces instead of metal.
