my new love - clay

When I can't edit video anymore... I look for something not so hung up in right and wrongs, something more subjective.

Not that the rules of editing film, audio or words can't be broken, but sometimes you just can't compare sitting at a computer to playing with colors, chemicals and clay in a studio... really letting your mind go.

My good pal, Dave Archer turned me on to a clay that can be used without a kiln. He also showed me a technique to grow off of... so here's the first 4 of that growth.

FROM AFRICA WITH LOVE... drift wood, broken glass, saw blade, sea shell and clay.






NE'RE-DO-U-WELL MAGIC MOJO BOTTLE PT.1 - HARSH TONGUE, BAD WORDS, GOOD TEETH - clay, broken glass, sharks tooth, small glass bottle, canadian nickle, broken angel, garlic bulb husk, beads, clay and secret stuff. this has been blessed and is a highly charged.






SALTON SEA & PEPPER SHAKERS - clay, a penny, a pinkie ring, mertle the turtle shell, tree bark and an acorn from dave archers back yard.





THE POWER OF LOVE COMPELS YOU... OR THE BLACK COOKIE MASS CHALICE.- clay, glass bowl, beads, sea shells, ely bank card, piece of cyotel painting, clay pottery from an indian dig, key to ely soda storage, key to Kristina's NOLA apt, key to a hotel room, evil charles salvia tin, guitar pic from jeff becerra, sid yidish doll, vietnam vet stress coin, diamond head mardi gras coin, eraser, 1/8 teaspoon, butter fist glove pin, cork from 12th anniversary wine, a pecan from behind the dew drop inn, war on terror army medal, amy hair tie, a button from the jackets of Anton LaVey, Jeff Becerra and me (Shane Bugbee) and more secret stuff. This was made for my wife, after being on the road for over a year... the ingredients are a collection of some of the stuff we loved from that trip.

I usually don't like such abstract pieces- but your work is really interesting- it seems so alive and organic. Very cool - the many layers of Shane just keep unfolding...

I'm diggin' it - very organic and unique! Are you keeping them for your private collection or do you intend to sell them?

My Photo
Name:

over 20 years of refusing the invites of the educated, celebrity and ruling classes, preferring instead the excitement of upper low class, poverty, petty crime and violence.

It's not the wine and cheese I hate, it's the boring, void of anything lives the rich and privileged scurry thru like the walking dead on meth - most of the rich think their cultured simply by consuming - culture can't be bought, it must be lived.

I was truly meant to live on the side of a hill, growing my own tomatoes, basil and garlic in peace with my soul mate and dog.
