Eye cups by pink-porcupine Eye cups by pink-porcupine
Final ceramics project was to create a bunch of cups to trade with others in the class. What I ended up making were more bowl-like, but they are small, and would hold about what a teacup would.
Each one has three nubby little legs on the bottom to keep them from rolling around. I sculpted a variety of eyes on the bottom of each one, some are diseased, some are injured, etc...
I was obligated to use underglazes and glazes we had in the studio, and they aren't the greatest. The underglaze selection isn't the best, and I couldn't get good colors. The clay is speckled buff, so it has these ugly black specks that show through. I am taking ceramics III next semester, and will be allowed to use different clay and will also buy my own underglazes. Everything is matte except I used clear gloss glaze on the eyes themselves to try and make them look more like real eyes.
Some didn't come out good. The ones here are all ones I found to be acceptable, that I used for the trade. There are a few more that were my favorites that I kept, and more that didn't turn out well that I just left at the studio.

Repulsive... therefore a success.
I can literally feel their torture.... and can imagine the sheer discomfort of using these as a real bowl. It was very wise to use the clear glaze on the eyes, they look utterly alive.

Noice :D Third one in the top row looks best to me, but I like the wide one at the bottom right and the grinning first one in the second row too :D

Omg, imagine serving tea from one of these and the person being served didn't know! Shock of their life once they got to the bottom (though might lose the cup if they're so surprised they dropped it).

I love the idea of making them and being able to trade for others in the class. Makes it more fun.

The specks kind of resemble freckles.
