This year Arlene Groch’s son Mike asked her to convert a steer skull (yes…it’s only resin, not real) into an object d’ Arte for his foundation’s fund-raiser auction during San Diego’s Gay Pride festivities this weekend. Here’s a close up so you can appreciate Mr. Steer’s fine mica shift ghost image coat. (Fans of Barbara McGuire will recognize her wonderful Klimt designs.) Other photos show a few stages of the process and the finished object.
Mr. Steer is a bit smaller than last year’s Mr. Deer, so he probably won’t bring in as much as the $700 Mr. Deer raised for this worthy cause, but Arlene is hoping he’ll also find a good home.
Well this little bird is another Summer Show and Tell from Robin. But it reminded me that the Southern Connecticut Clay ConneCTion is coming up soon. A Retreat so well known it goes by the one word name: Connecticut. Say you are going to Connecticut, and all the PC cognoscenti know you are headed for a long weekend of full frontal ’round he clock claying.
Many of our members will be attending. I can tell you right now I will be expecting some images of your creations. Email your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org.
