How do you measure fame?

 This cartoon is my friend’s  Chad Blakely version of fame.  He is an illustrator that goes to all the Comic Cons and I get to hear fantastic stories of costumes and the Comic book (Graphic Novel ) world.  Today we were joking around about combining NCECA and Comic Con, and if you ever wondered this is what it would look like.  So here I am tabling my work at CLAYcon!!!  Maybe we should start a new trend! And if anyone ever comes up to me in a costume cosplaying one of my pots, I know I made it!  Haha!  Well, I do know I am already a giant geek!

Here are a few of the entries from the Support Show it was in a couple of weeks ago.  It was a fun invitation, my friend Georgia Roswell who owns Artful Hand Gallery came up with the idea of Supporting the American Cancer Society for breast cancer and she asked several of to make bra related work.  It was a nice challenge and I came up with my bra bowls.  While making these I had to make several prototypes before I came up with something I was happy with.  Sometimes trying to get these bowls done I felt like I had two left hands.  But I’m pretty happy that I sold two of them!  So I think I will make a few more! 

BraHide was made by Georgia’s husband!  I’ve never thought of using rawhide as an art material.  His bra is amazing!  The last one is made by Do Palma and Carman’s bra is magnetized.  You can grab the strawberries, pineapples or the flowers and change her bra.  It’s a great piece.  I love Do’s work!

    Love the bowls, the black ones are interesting, do you have a closeup of them somewhere to see the surface your created.

    Hi Linda
    No close up. I didn’t even take that picutre. My pots came out the kiln and strait to the show, they were still warm. I wish I had a close up picture. The glaze I used on the surface is a matt black called Black Tar and the shiny black is Amaco.
