Cosmodeus by anthonyweber
done for a class assignment, a ceramic mixed media project using an object from life and altering its meaning. i had a hornless goat skull and the top of a baby deer skull. i stacked them and the rest is from imagination.
the slug eyes were added after the clay was fired. i left holes in the skull sockets to put wire through for an armature. all the wire is attached inside with metal epoxy. the eyes are also constructed with epoxy and finished with a layer of polymer clay cured with a heat gun. the most difficult part was curing the clay without melting the plastic eyeballs. the curing temp was really close to the melting temp. as i went along with the sculpture the nasal cavity reminded me of a coffin, so i put a little astral corpse in there and filled the area with dyed polyester casting resin, which smelled awful.  
The painting process was more of an experiment. i had a limited palette in acrylic and no idea for what i wanted. many layers were glazed multiple times and/or completely painted over. 
As for subject matter, there isn't much of a narrative behind it. it simply is what it is. 
Cosmic Form by anthonyweber
Cosmic Form
metal sculpture with a sheet of plastic draped over by melting with a propane torch. i was then able to pop off the skin after it cooled and spray painted it with acrylic chrome spray paint.  the frame is basically 'S' curves welded to a crescent shape, to give a look of a rib cage or insect husk.  this is my first time working with metal which turned out to be simpler than i had thought.  done in an intro to sculpture class with limited time. I would have done a few things differently but I'm satisfied with the execution because of how simple the piece was to make yet the contrast of the two forms bring a lot of interest. I'll probably do more like it in the future. 
Necrostein2 by anthonyweber
same ceramic sculpt from an aau class with added glaze and a hand-sewn pleather collar studded with spikes. in the future ill do a second layer of pleather to complete the design. I'm hoping this could be my key to get into the california conference for the advancement of ceramic art (ccaca) in sacramento. 
Doomstone by anthonyweber
Polymer clay with an acrylic wash. about 1.25 x 3 x 0.75 inches 
Keychain Casts by anthonyweber
Keychain Casts
Some reproductions of a couple sculptures turned into keychains. I used silicone rtv for the mold and polyurethane resin for the casts. still figuring out how to paint them.
