A reworking of an old Renaissance era architectural illustration by Hans Vredeman de Vries, which I found in it’s original state on publicdomainreview.org a while back. More deets about this thing and why I haven’t been posting as much as I used after the cut.
I know that in 2 months, when I’m back in school full-time for the first time in a couple years, pursuing another degree, spending all my time doing things for other people, I am going to envy my past self for the amount of freedom I had. I’m going to look back at days like today, where I turn over and go back to sleep 3 times just because I feel under the weather, and I’m going to say “What a waste of time. I could have done anything with that time.”
Which is why I’m going to play video games all day every day for the next two months. See you some time in August.

In an alternate universe, Robert Arryn doesn’t die terribly, like everyone would naturally expect him to, and finds that the cure to his seizures lies in the fumes of a certain herb. When he grows up, he changes the banner of his house from an eagle to a leaf, but keeps the family words.
I’m okay with the people who made fun of me for wearing sunblock all the time as a child. When they die of skin cancer in 20 years, I’ll pour SPF 50 “Sensitive skin” on their graves and they will be reincarnated as beautiful gingers. -Beanman
Well, that turned dark quickly.
I tagged this “Hypoallergenic for baby faces.” here I was thinking that this walk down memory lane would be a practice in self loathing.
Be unkind and fight everyone you’ve hardly met.
I started working in the studio again today, and for once I didn’t have any trouble getting right into it. I had an idea brewing in my head and I executed it, and it feels good.
The basic idea is to throw a perfectly flat plate with a raised area in the middle, and then to slice that off with a coiled wire. As you can see, I didn’t drag the wire straight through, but I pulled it side to side, and switched directions ever inch or so. I might make an instructional video if there’s interest.
Now that I’ve done a few variations, I think I’m gonna churn out a set of these, but I might also try moving the wire different ways.
I did a lot of this kind of stuff on the bottom of pots for the last year or so, when I wanted to make some interesting feet and I wasn’t super worried about weight or evenness, but I saw someone who had coiled wire designs on a plate earlier this month, and I was like “I KNOW EXACTLY HOW THEY DID THAT… I COULD MAKE A COOLER VERSION OF THAT!”
Hi. I’m still doing pottery, but I’ve been busy trying to get school all figured out for next year. Here’s a picture of some work I was selling earlier this month. I’m sure someone will like it. Not the best staging, but I mostly worked with what was already there. I just got back in the studio, so I should have some more in-progress shots soon.
Happy Easter~! ◕‿◕
beanman replied to your post:If you don’t like that I don’t only post paintings…You’ve had complaints?
A few, hey did you know your pottery is pretty kick ass!
Hey, I’ll take your word for it. If I wasn’t a bloodless, ginger, demon spawn, I’d seriously be blushing right now.
Oh this is just fantastic! Pleass watch it! Bernard Leach is just really cool. I think I’m in love!
I’ve got some good news and some bad news for you. The bad news is that your new boyfriend has been dead for quite some time.
The good news is that there’s a full version of this video :U
