Is that some sort of sex term? I'm afraid to look it up.

Nice, but it seems like a lot of work just to make an ashtray.

Csb: When I was 6 or 7 years old, I got a Shetland pony. I named him Fuzzy Pumper. Only had him about a year until my dad had to sell him. I didn't really mind, because during that year I learned that Shetland ponies are evil incarnate.

Begin Japanology^ did an episode on her work^ last year.
Pretty damn cool, regardless of whether you're into ceramics (I'm not).

I'm glad they didn't show her finished, fired ceramics. Because that would have spoiled it.

Thought she was makin playdoh bacon.

You wouldn't pay $10 to see it in the theater if they did.

The video description is tl;dr, and yet it somehow manages to tell me absolutely nothing at all about the video. Maybe we should save the freeform writing for our livejournal, no?

Some of it is quite nice, if you like that sort of thing. Feibleman's website.

This was quite cool. I've watched it twice so far. Both the press and the extruder seem easy enough to build. Only a kiln to fire finished patterns seems hard, and you can usually rent time with one. I'm gonna try this.

If you were nearby, I'd let you use mine.

Looked more like the Fun Factory to me.

2012-07-08 02:41:22 PM
That's great. But what do you do with the final product? Is it just decorative? I mean, I respect the talent and time involved in it, but I have no use for such things.

Thanks y'all for the support. A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to buy a small kiln and about 100 or so molds for making porcelain doll-heads. Unfortunately, I didn't have the $10,000 they were asking. I could build my own kiln I suppose, but I don't know anything about making one. Time to Google, I guess...

She does a lot of decorative tableware. Her sake cups are beautiful.

(It's not something I'd have around my house, because I'm far too clumsy, but anyone who can afford to use custom made tableware that they didn't make themselves is probably living a life that I wouldn't recognize.)

I had the barber shop. If you didn't poke all the play-doh out of the tiny holes after you were done, it would dry up and clog it. It was cool, but a pain in the ass.

It's not too hard, if you have the space, and there are lots of instructions available online. But you can pick up an electric kiln on craigslist for probably a couple hundred bucks at most. People buy them in a fit of creativity, and after a few years, they realize that they've never actually used it, so they sell them cheap or even free.

Good luck!

Ah..OK. Still nothing I'd buy, because I'd never spend that kind of money on stuff. But she's very talented. Or at least very willing to put lots of time into her work.

Hey Finger, if you want to get started right away get some FIMO from an art supply store or wherever. It is oven cured, easy to work with and really fun. You don't need an extruder but I am pretty sure they sell them. If I remember correctly, she was making what they call canes. My daughter and I used to make stuff all the time with that clay. Good times.

Fimo site.

Here is a Youtube channel for Polymer Clay.

Nice link. I may have to check this stuff out as well.

My Playdo'h Fuzzy Pumper did not turn out things that looked like bowel movements of ever increasing disappointment.

Dear Jerk: I got a fuzzy pumper when I was 14.


Did you press charges?

IAMONE: Hey Finger


That's an excellent site! I was planning on looking for natural clays, but this looks much better. I may still do some prospecting, but this is what I'll begin with. Thanks!

People that don't have enough money to buy expensive handmade porcelain sake cups?
 
2012-07-08 04:56:53 PM
So is it a plate, or?
 
2012-07-08 06:00:40 PM
I didn't know what a fuzzy pumper was, so I googled for it.

Damn autocorrect!

I think that's also how you make Valyrian steel.

Is a fuzzy pumper some kind of euphemism for a teenage boy going through puberty?
 
2012-07-08 09:01:04 PM
So, I'm not sure what's worse - watching an artist perform a time-tested ceramics technique "magic," or the ear-torturing "music" to which the ersatz "magic" is set.

When I think back to the Playdoh press thing that my cousin had, I seem to remember one setting where it would squeeze out a perfect, seamless tube..like straight macaroni. When I think about this, I can't understand what sort of attachment would make this possible.

It was a complex fitting, the first part made 2 seperate pieces like a frown on top and smile on bottom, as it pushed farther along it was squeezed tighter around a core(to keep it from collapsing) this is the point wear the seams were compressed and smoothed over by the sides of the outer tube.

imagine the following as the first stage (But completely round on outside) the "O" in the center is solid the material passes around it


(--O--)



the second stage would be (again completely round)


( O )


with no bar across the 2nd half it wouldn't maintain the split.

Ahh, so it concealed the seam. I guess I can now stop attributing it to sorcery. Thanks you.
