He's a special chicken. He likes to peck at the flowers, and the bug zapper.
By The Redneck Potter, Van Hine. He's a special chicken... Be kind to him, nature surely wasn't. He spends most of his day pecking in circles.
Sometimes he pecks his shadow. Or a spot on the wall. Mostly, he just wanders around in a fog of confusion. Bright, shiny things attract him. He once pecked at the bug zapper, and we almost had fried chicken that evening.But somehow he survived, just a wee bit singed. Just like Chicken Little, I'm just scratching the surface.. An older gentleman was looking at my face jugs and he said, Some of these really make me laugh. Others make me scratch my head. I said, Maybe it's your shampoo. Take home a FUNKY chicken today, and try a different shampoo. A woman looked at one of my jugs and commented, Wow, you must be totally off your rocker to come up with ideas like this. I leaned over and said, Just a bit today, yesterday I fell off completely.
With many people today focused on beauty and having everything looking just right, why not pay a little attention to those things in life that aren't so cute and cuddly? So, let's forget perfect for a while. Let down your hair, kick back - and let's celebrate ugly!
My ugly face jugs start their life as a shapeless lump of clay. After much poking, prodding, and smooshing - whoila!
An ugly face jug is born. Some are only mildly afflicted, others have serious cases of ugly. And a few are even fugly! About the Artist: Not sure where to begin, so let's start in the middle.
I have found my true passion in clay! Took pottery classes back in college in 1999, but lacked a place to work.Then I moved to Tennessee and finally got a studio of my own. So I've been working on the potter's wheel since 2005. And I began making whisky face jugs in early 2007. I first started offering my work at local craft shows in mid-2007. Most people find that my work swings the gamut from whimsical to downright creepy (depending on my mood) with many degrees in between.
Hubby says I make whimsical and funny stuff three weeks out of the month and the other week I make evil. This was obviously made during one of my'happy' weeks. Now, you have an opportunity to collect one of my works without having to go to the show! Every piece is thrown on the wheel, altered/sculpted by hand and then fired & glazed.My work is hand carved - NEVER MOLDED! No two are ever exactly alike - although they may seem similar - they are just part of a series of themed jugs. Each face jug is signed on the bottom and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Don't forget to check out my Check out my other jugs. They are off the wall (just like me). If you like my jugs, be sure to add me to your favorites list. So you can see new work as it's listed. You can also search THE REDNECK POTTER on Face Book to see my creations as they are being made - before they are listed.
