My younger brother's clay models Can't Post

my little brother Andy made these during a summer art course at a local studio
he's 13 (almost 14) now and about to start high school (eep!)
He's quite proud of them and couldn't wait to show me

here they are:

the one ring of course
I believe he threw it on the potter's wheel

and Orthanc
he said he made it as tall as the studio staff would let him (it needed to fit in the kiln)

MWA HAHAHAHAHA
my brother is thoroughly "corrupted"

he has a tendency to take on large projects [In reply to] Can't Post

and complicate them more than need be
a tendency my parents are sure he picked up from me

and yes, he has a lot of patience, at least with art
he didn't mind spending all his time on just two pieces while the other kids were making lots of smaller/lesser quality items
his original plan was to make Barad-dūr to go along with Orthanc, then he realized what a big project he had taken on Tongue

Reminds me a LOT of my younger brother at his age... [In reply to] Can't Post

And HE went on to get his name in the credits of films like The Abyss, Terminator 2, Back to the Future 2 AND 3 and many others.

I do too! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd imagined it that way because I'd always thought of the magickal black rock of Numenore to be a lot like obsidian, which when polished is quite glossy.

Models and special effects... [In reply to] Can't Post

At one time he was Dreamworks' top man. At least that's what then Dreamworks' CEO said after the Disney merger where Disney wanted to cut benefits at DW and my brother left the company. He apparently was so good that the DW CEO went to the Disney VP and told him, "You just cost me my best man." My brother left Hollywood around 12 years ago or so to marry his highschool sweetheart who had divorced at apparently the right time and he now lives in Alexandria, VA.

I love his Orthanc [In reply to] Can't Post

Especially how he used the glaze (I assume that's what it is) to make it shiny. The Ring is good too, though I prefer the Orthanc. Smile
