Stoned Twilight Sparkle - Sculpture by MadameLeFl0ur Stoned Twilight Sparkle - Sculpture by MadameLeFl0ur
Stoned Twilight Sparkle from the episode Stare Master.
Made in a white stoneware clay and colored with stains.

About 33 cm/13 inch high from horn to hoof.

All cracks exept one on her right ear are hand made to make the surface a little more interresting. And with all those cracks Twilight is a bit of a crack addict don't you think? Ha! See what I did there!? Huh?... nothing? ok... :/

I love to play with words and this picture inspired me much to make the sculpture: [link]

Edit: Now on Equestria Daily, thank you to whoever submitted it. - My reaction: [link]

Ah, the attention to detail is just breathtaking! And you did great with the expression! I wish had something more constructive to say, but I thought I'd at least swing by and say this some impressive craftsmanship.

oh crap really? ahhh I probably shouldn't though... If you could put a price on it I would probably start to budget for it. Just can't make an offer. I'd probably just low-ball you and leave you feeling insulted XP

Fantastic! I love ceramics but never gave it a shot as a medium for things pony related (as you know, the sculpting process can be quite laborious). You have a great stylized form there, and making Twilight resemble stone solves the problem of trying to glaze a potentially complex piece. I especially enjoy the head-on view, great depth and shadows.

Thank you. Ceramic is really a wonderful material if you know the rules and are willing to compromise. :D

Glazes on the other hand. I often avoid glazes when I work with ceramics, for many reasons other than that I just love raw surfaces:

Glazes often tend to fill up carvings etc and takes away much details.
It takes lot of trial and error to get the glaze be as you want it.
Different glazes may change eachothers characteristics if they are next to eachother.
It's hard to imagine how the end result will look like and slightest temperature difference in the kiln may change it.

I wish that I had patience to experiment more with them but I guess that's not my cup of chocolate.

Yeah, perfect example of one of my things that was basically ruined with the glazing: [link] before, and after: [link]

Problem was, I didn't really do enough test tiles, and I had to spray on the glaze, meaning it got too thick on some parts and the celadon tended to cloud and get tiny bubbles in the thicker recesses. also, I was expecting the iron oxide to break through the celadon and create more visible rust spots (like it did on an earlier piece of mine) but I suppose with the thicker glaze it just didn't stand a chance. I should have just done a patina or something like that.

Do you work at a studio or out of your home? If it's a studio just watch other people's glaze combos, ask what they did, and emulate. also, designing pieces with particular glaze combos in mind (incorporating it into the very form and construction) really helps, but is a pretty advanced way to go about it.

...Hooray for successful glazing! [link]

It dosen't look so bad from here, but I see what you mean. The main problem I see is that the glaze is shiny and thus kills so many of the shadows.

I often tend to work at home but all the kilns and glaze ingridients are at the school. The chemistry and math behind the whole process is a real pain for my dyscalculia :S . I also don't want to get to used to glazes because I will not have the ability to work with them anymore in the future. Right now I'm a sucker for paperclay, love that stuff and how it can be used on the surface even though it belch out smoke during firing.

Next pony piece coming up here will be glazed though. But with a reliable well tested white-ish glaze I mixed up a bucket of a while ago. Safe cards ^^

And I love that "ugly vase" in the beginning of the gallery btw. My non-pony stuff is in the same universe.

Yay for the ugly vase! I like pretty, and I like grotesque. That was yet another example of a piece where the glaze took away a lot of the detail, but luckily the shino carbon trap tends to make pieces relatively interesting of it's own accord based on kiln atmosphere, it's always a roll of the dice but one that hardly ever fails to please.

If I can throw in my own suggestion, try doing a primitive firing on one of your pieces. Slap a good coat of terra sigillata on the outside, burnish the hell out of it, and then burn it with a bunch of interesting stuff. I'd be SUPER stoked to see the outcome, and it's another finishing technique that doesn't require glaze, though having a simple/smooth surface makes it way easier to burnish. I'd be super stoked to see that.

Sort of, but no falling or anything included.

The kiln that I was going to use broke so I had to put her in a smaller kiln. It would have fitted perfect if she were an earth pony or a pegasus, darn that horn. So I flipped her to the side with the ear as one of the supports and it probably didn't like that at all when it went up to 1280 degrees celcius.

Ironically though it's not the crack that you see in the middle picture, that is one of the hand made ones. The real crack is close to it but nearly invisible.
