I’ve been working on Kevin Gen. 2 for about 7 days now.  Hopefully I can finish building him this afternoon.  Scratch that, I have to finish building him this afternoon.

Here he is, nearly build, but before any riveting was added.

And here he is now.  You can see that I’ve started adding the rivet strips.


So, that’s where I’m at.  He will weigh about 80lbs after being fired (I think) which is a sharp contrast to Kevin Gen. 1 who was about 250 after firing.  This guy has no internal structure whatsoever, I’ve just been slipping and scoring the hell out of slabs as I build him. Also he’s made of Raku clay with 25lbs of grog to 100 lbs of clay, which is much stronger than the stoneware I used before.

SHAMELESS SELF PLUG:  My studio will have a show in the 840 Gallery in the DAAP building on UC’s campus that everyone should attend. There should be some pretty interesting work in it, and of course Kevin Gen. 2 will be there, so you can come see him in person. Everyone has only had 3 weeks to complete whatever is going into the show, which is pretty impressive.  The opening is on the 19th of October, and there should be some “refreshments”.  Not sure yet if there will be beer and wine, but it’s a possibility.  Attend!

    1. Kevin one has been demolished. I couldn’t lift him to get him into the dumpster, so I pushed him off the wheely cart and then carried the pieces to the dumpster haha. I kept one piece though for sentiment.
