what day is this ???

hi guys...i've been on this casting frenzy...for the last 5 days and i have one waiting for me in the kiln...soooooo...i had to look at the date on the phone this morning to figure out what day it was...i thought it was sunday lisa said monday...yes we were both wrong...i NEED a cup of coffee...



as i said i've been a casting fool for several days now...and today i've got to start finishing all the stuff i've cast...heres a hand-full of some of the casting's...



ok enough of that...i recent-lee got michael demeng's latest book "dusty diablos"...and i love it...i've also loved his work for quite some time now...when we lived in port townsend we helped hang and display some of his work in our friends gallery there and thats when i realy started to dig his work...so when i saw his new book i had to have...


this book is all about his many trips to mexico...and what seems to be his fascination with
dia de los muertos...and i must admit i've shared this fascination my-self...i started to love the art work that comes from dia de los muertos when we lived in tucson...man i miss tucson and our trips down to mexico...i was going to put a picture of a catus here but i could'nt find one...anyway...so this book's kind-of where i got the idea for the heart and staying with the de los muertos theme i'm working on this skull in made with the left over clay i used on the heart...heres the skull...
  

soooooo i'm not sure just what i'm going to do with this but i kind-of like it...if anyone has any ideas let me know...well enough of this...it's time to go cast and grind metal...we'll talk soon...
