Follow up on the Sung Dynasty style vase project

One of the completed vase forms I have been working with alongside with the moldmaking class I am teaching at UC. Based on the image on the left I carved, molded, and cast the vases on the right. Click here to see the step by step process.

New form for the repertoire


Here we go, 2-a.m. and finished with the hanging dead squirrel mount. I learned how to skin and flesh a critter; as well as, sew with the faithful American baseball stitch. I'll let this sucker dry for a couple weeks and then take it to the 3-D scanner for some good ol' laser rotate laser action.

The Current Ceramics Monthly Issue

Featured in the latest issue of Ceramics Monthly is an article by Steve Thurston explaining our research into the many prototyping avenues. Steve explains how we achieved my rat form, through 3-d scanning and rapid prototyping taxidermy. The best part is the full page print of the "Ratster", the rat and rooster above, which is one of my pieces from our Dresden Porcelain residency.
