Getting closer to the actual functioning creation and I think this will be a great clue of what I am doing. This is a scan of scaled down bricks I made by hand. The size of the bricks are taken from a standard 9'' by 4'' by 3.5'' hard brick, scaled down to cm.... I have created 2,000 hard bricks with my initials (KFC) pressed into them, along with countless hundreds of cut soft bricks of the same size. What I am doing with these bricks will soon be posted!

This is an image taken by my friend and photographer Kyla Medina with a
Canon Rebil xsi and a telephoto lenson an a plastic light box.
This is a little nontraditional however I really like how the light shines through the clay.

I liked this form however my last bug got stepped on so I decided to make another one. So here it is, I also just submitted this into the Fourth International small Teapot Competition. This is a great show to be in so I wish every one the best of luck who entered their work in the Fourth International small Teapot Competition.

These Creatures in this posting are all wood fired. The temperament of wood firing is intense, the proses is long, tedious, tiring and amazing! Traditional wood fire creates variation in colors depending on the wood, clay, and glazes used but browns tend to be the most sought after. Loading the kiln can be just a crucial as the glazing because of flame patterns and temperature variations from the front of the kiln to the back. This is were it becomes difficult for my work to even stand a chance in a wood kiln. The ash build up can be quite overwhelming, so i need to place it normally in the middleish of the kiln. The ash can melt the pieces to the kilns shelving so i need to make props for all the little arms, claws, feet and what ever else I put in there. If the planets align then I can get some great results resembling crustaceans and exoskeleton like appearances.
