Default I finished buliding my man what do you think?

Hi all I posted some pictures of the man I was building. I explained his head had to be empty. What I meant was the sculpture has to be hollow in order to fire it. My hubby had the idea to turn him in a really odd and funny cookie jar. So I did. Yup you can fill my man's head with anything you want. Image the possibilities!! I was trying for a weathered look and I used three different under glazes. I used a techinque to write Latin on the back. I'm wondering if anyone knows what that Latin means.

Thank you. I'm thinking for halloween I will fill his head with gummy worms.
He took me about 4 months to bulid. I was worried he would break in the klin, but he survived the fire. The picture below is the man I modelled the cookie jar after. This is the first time I tried to make a face that looked like someone. It's not 100% but I did better then I thought I would. Oh and that is me standing next to the gorgeous man my cookie jar was inspired by.

No guesses at the Latin on the back. Maybe it's hard to read. The back says Non Timebo Mala.

TM gets the gold star "Fear no evil" is how I know it. But that is splitting hairs.

Not a clue. He seemed really nice when I met him. But he is an actor (Jensen Ackles) so I don't know him well enough to say one way or another. My hubby was disappointed I don't do a cookie jar of him. But an actor is never going to see it and complain I didn't do it right. My hubby on the other hand would care and complain.

My take on this picture is that you look very pretty in it.

In 1969 an artist in NYC was commissioned to paint a biblical mural in the lobby of a Manhattan office building . She and I knew each other and she wanted me to pose as I had reddish brown hair and beard and she believed that I resembled a prominent biblical figure .I opted not to do it ,possibly an error on my part .

Henry, yes - I'd say a huge error on your part!!

kat, still loving this photo of you and your "model" for the cookie jar - the actor and "gorgeous guy." He seems very affable.

This is a quick video I took of his smile. I wish I was talented enough to sculpt that smile. Because Damn!!

Thank you. I was worried after I took the picture that I made a goofy face. Because I have done that in pictures a lot. One cruise every single formal night picture I had a strange look on my face. So I was pretty happy that I had a real smile on my face.

Hair is the easiest thing for me to do. Probably because I cut hair for 14 years I know what it should look like.
