Hobby

Gotta have a hobby, or two... or a bazillion.

Monster does ceramics but I think this might be a step up.
A number of holy-shit-that's-how-that's-done, moments.

2:15, 3:23, 4:25, 5:20 but it really doesn't matter because the top ceramics creators in the world don't impress you, do they.

It was very impressive, but I don't understand what wasn't straightforward technique-wise. Enjoy your thread

My wife paints miniature figures...these figures are used for various games. I'm incredibly impressed with her work. Apparently, so are a lot of other folks...she's taking in awards and getting teaching requests.

So you knew they formed multi-layers of different color clay then carved them. I've never even seen a finished product of that method. As for shaping the clay with bats, never thought of that either, thought they were molded like that. So it appears I'm a neophyte to your all encompassing knowledge of ceramic art. It's a shame you never enlightened us passed painting glaze on greenware.

She is good, very good! Has you ever painted any of the pewter soldiers?

She has...she can paint pretty much anything. She tends to stick to fantasy/sci-fi stuff though.

This is one of the items she's working on right now:

There is nothing quite like watching a true master perform his or her art. That video in the op actually made me feel very emotional, simply because of the beauty of the art, and being privileged enough to have the opportunity to see it, albeit via the internet. Truly amazing imo.

Actually bruce, i think they were layers of glaze, dried but obviously unfired.

Speaking of pottery glaze, some people were wondering what the binding agent was for the color layer on the terracotta army in China.

No problem, just make model samples, mixing pigments with either animal glue or glue from free-range chicken eggs, then bury for a year.
2-Extract proteins from the model and historical samples, give them an ultrasonic bath, centrifuge, and collect supernatants.
3-Prevent EDTA interference in the polychrome layers of the historical samples by complexation and dialysis.
4-Hydrolyze extracted proteins with sequencing grade trypsin to generate peptide fragments.
5-Then simply compare peptide mass fingerprints generated by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS).

What could be simpler then that, although you might have to borrow a MALDI-TOF-MS from a neighbor, if you don't have one.
