:::: One of the last 1000 Major Jugs By a lifetime Potter/Sculptor ::::
Each major jug numbered,
dated and signed by the artist.

 

Title: "Gearhead Robot "

Comment:: Flash Gordon could put this guy to work right away.
He was all hand-thrown and sculpted. Then he was glazed with a metallic, grungy, bronze/black lava glaze that came out especially nice. There are lots of metallic flashed areas. He was high-fired. Then he was refired with metallic lusters to accentuate the old space robot look. The inside is glazed with a lead-free, food safe glaze. This mechanics nightmare looks like a fugitive from somelong idle factory. He has LOTS OF GEARS and lots of detail.
(I'm worn out from carving gear teeth in clay). He has a toggle switch tongue , a pressure guage ear (so he can keep track of his steam presure) and, did I mention, GEARS. He has a I.d. plate on the back and is also signed on the bottom. He is the third in a series of "Steampunk" robot jugs and #28 of the last 1000 face jugs.. 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.
