Orbis Luminarius: The Light Bulb Snail

This piece has turned into a test for a much larger version I plan to make in the next few days. I am unhappy with how the glaze crazed on the bulb/shell. That will not be happening again.

I must apologize for the poor picture quality. I haven't found a good place to take slides of my work yet, since I moved. I will be replacing this picture as soon as I can.

Please, let me know what you think of this piece. The larger version will be capable of much more detail. I'm plan to make the antenna much more life-like, and give this guy a mouth.

The concept is brilliant, not to say dazzling ;)

Subjecting such ordinary items to Dalian transformation evokes all our anxieties about the absurdity of experience.

Love this concept! Very original. And, snails are awesome. :)

The crazing is very cool.

It would also be interesting if you could find a way to make this luminous... perhaps by perforating and inserting a light source, or some translucent media..
(bioluminescent snails? :D )

anyway, love these. looking forward to your bigger ones! :)

Yeah, I thought about the bioluminescent aspect, but that would be difficult with the scale I'm going at, and I want this look like a light bulb on the ground instead of being on. It would still be cool though, maybe if I ever get a chance to do some glassblowing. :D

I finished making the larger one, I should have some pictures of it in a couple of weeks!
