This is a custom trophy that I created to the El Gato Classic by The event will be held in Palm Springs and should be awesome!
Description: Ceramic plate I threw on the potters wheel with clear crackle glaze & Black Gloss Glaze. I am the first ceramic artist to use a tattoo machine on ceramics to create a relief carving. I drip black ink in the areas where I use the tattoo machine. below is a video of me tattooing on this piece.
I am using a jwelery wheel to clean the ink from the crackle glaze.
This is what it looks like to apply the black ink to the carved/tattooed areas of the piece.
I will document the process below with pictures...
This is the logo of the event and a skater graphic I printed out to trace onto the piece. I do basically the same thing that a tattoo artist does on people but I do it and I have no blood or bitching people to deal with :)
I use a v-tool to carve the the design after I trace it.
After I am done carving and tattooing the piece then I fire it in the kiln and glaze it.
