    Hey, i thought i'd show you guys the mask i've been working on. It's not finished yet and does look a bit shit, but it's the 2nd thing i've ever made in ceramics.

    Are you capable of writing in a sentence in proper English?

    No one thinks it's cute or fun, it just makes you look like an absolute moron.

    for the first version

    For your second attempt (if there is one) I'd suggest avoiding cutting lines into the clay for the wrinkles. You can make light indentations with a wet eraser head which won't be as pronounced before firing, but will look more natural. You can paint them in black when you're done. I would also make the eye holes bigger, mouth smaller (or at least less smiley), eyebrows a little lower, and the cheeks more pronounced. If you can only do one thing out of that list, make it the eyes. Plastic masks can be trimmed with an exacto-blade, ceramic you're stuck with.

    An ambitious project for your second ceramics adventure, to be sure.

    It may not But you will get a feel for it as your experience and skills increase, if you want to stick with it. As they say, "It gets better!"

    You keep newspapers for more than two years? Or do you just really like Skodas?

    I like it! Good job.

    Cheers :) It was very hard to do because of the shitty face mould my school has, it doesn't even look like a face.

    I did some free-form ceramic sculpture when I was in high school, it's good times :)

    Listen, no matter what you make and how it turns out:
    Never diss your own work as crappy
    However it turns out, take credit for it and say you intended for it to look that way
    Make up some bullshit art story about how it represents mans inhumanity to man or something. Use the term 'negative space' a lot. You'll do fine. :)

    Wouldn't he have to use negative space a lot for that to work?

    Well today, some fuck head did this to my work.


    I'm thinking he works for the government :( What a fucken cunt...
  30. Anon-V Member

    Wow, that sucks. Gives you a reason to try again and make a better one though.
  31. Marassast Member

    Yeah true, I want to beat the shit out of him tho.
  32. Anonymous Member

    WTF man? Why did he do that?
  33. Marassast Member

    Who bloody knows. he picked it up and it just shatterd into peices.. :( im really sad..
    Well, atleast i got him sent into the student welfare office for 6 hours, he was drunk and he's 14.
  34. This is truly revolting.
    Was some nice work too, i was always terrible at sculpting. Never mind, just another reason to have another go.

    He sounds like a right cunt. Never mind matey.
  36. Marassast Member

    Thank you for your support :) I will persist to make a better one.
  37. Problem with making the mask is individuality. Posting a pic here on a dated newspaper makes you traceable. Buy mass-produced mask instead.

    No. Most people don't even know what it is, but it's "arty."
  40. xenubarb Member

    Look at it as a new opportunity to make a new one. Better, stronger...sell it for $6 million dollars!
    (when I took ceramics in college, I lost a lot of pieces because they'd just open the kiln in the morning and anyone could walk in and take stuff.
    And they did.)
