Plane Beginnings – Part 2

Okay, the jump off point was on paper, now I needed to search our molds to see how far I could jump!  We have a 1000+ molds, luckily I have them all in a photographic catalog.  Deciding to start with the nose of the plane, it narrowed down our mold search.  We knew it would have to be round, duh, but the scale was the bug-a-boo.  I had this picture in mind, so off I went with the catalog in hand and pulling out molds to check their scale.  Paydirt!  By George, I think I found it, LOL.


Truely, it looks so simple and plain, but once they were glazed together – BINGO – they were perfect!  A link to a Babies R Us photo defined the color pallete.  I was ready to paint and fire these pieces together, oh and make sure I had the holes drilled for the propeller.  We had lift off…………… see you when the kiln cools!

About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
