A friend of mine, one Manuel Peinado, offered to pain a ceramic sculpture I'd made while working at a summer camp in Marin. What he produced is, quite simply, amazing.
Many of the ceramic sculptures I make are designed to be easily replicated by kids. The Monster Cat is basically a pinch pot with teeth.
I enjoy how Manny took both an organic and artistic approach to painting the Monster Cat.
This, according to Manny, is the boy inside the beast's belly.
The monster cat is so big, but stay tuned for more (and larger) collaborative ceramic pieces!
