Robert's latest

Here's a few shots of Robert Fontanelli's latest conceptual ceramics piece.  I don't remember what he titled it, but I would call it frackin' AWESOME!
There's some debate about whether the tray holding all the various homages to great ceramics, ready to be inserted into the table-top, is part of the piece, or not.  I say yes!  Quite an assemblage!

I'm thinking maybe a celadon glaze for this one.

The sanding really made a difference - I had been slightly bummed at how rough this looked before I started sanding; now, just before glazing, she looks slick.

And here's the very beginnings of the next one in the series.  Yes, it looks like a boat, but: it's upside down, and this is one-third the eventual height. 

      thanks Robert for snapping these photos!
