recently finished old cup

while still recovering form a bad could witch ended up with a nice pneumonia i "finally"
managed to finish and old wip(well still got to varnish it,but i already call it finished...i can't wait).

pour thing had its leg broken and it had a few more weak points but i did not rushed
and resolved them slowly as time and mood let me...

i don't have "how to build "pictures but i tell you i made it over the same type of milk jug i use for this kind of cups (called "MILLI"milk) using both methods -strips and pulp-and i love that shape that can easily become something else for ex.a princess dress if turned upside down lol...

when i reached the painting part i thought i may use one of my pattern sketches over it (see the blue paint version) but it was not only v difficult but also not v effective so i let it go and made something" lighter" using paper coils (not a bit of clay i swear! that medium is making me with the eye from a long time but i'm a stubborn head and have this silly ambition of "pure"paper...well at least regarding this cup lol).
i made the coils with the same method i wrote about a few posts ago..
.


this is the final product,i don't know what's coming
next i could make a nice mosaic of unfinished stuffs waiting in different places...

i may use that other pattern someday but it would be so nice if i could emboss it lightly somehow.painting wouldn't be so hard anymore .

Very beautiful! Your papier mache is so inspiring--can't wait until I get my creative space finished and I can get back to work on some pieces that have been on hold for far too long...
