Introduction: Ceramic Skateboard and Leg

Picture of Ceramic Skateboard and Leg

Final stage published here.

This was a project I did in December of 2014.

Dimensions: H: 8 1/4 in. W: 2 in. D: 5 5/8

It is a high-fired ceramic piece. I had a lot of fun with this piece, Especially being aware of how it was going to balance throughout the process. First I constructed the leg; which needed to be hollowed, making sure the skateboard could support it. Once individually constructed, I conjoined the two when they were still in a moist state. Once it was a single piece I fired it in the upright position, to insure the balancing act would remain balanced. After it was fired, I applied a Red-Iron Oxide for a finish using an air-spray gun; (applying an even, consistent color throughout). Lastly, once the color was applied, I threw it into a low-fire batch to react with the stain, leaving it with a silver- varying coat.

Awesome sculpture! Do you have any more pictures of your process? I hope we see more projects from you in the future!
