Molekh, Bob Cat and Mezuzah’s for everyone.
Our Editor Responds: I may create a small slit on the side of the pine comb for future Mezuzahs – thanks for the reminder Diane.
I’ve spent the last several days re-sculpting the ‘old’ bob cat used in the Lost Lake LA project. I pulled a cat from the old mold then reworked him. After that, I took a mold off of the improved B-Cat. He’s more stylized now with greater dimension and presence. Should have done that ages ago.
The leftover B cats AND future B cats are part of the cinderblock wall decor I’m creating for the Twyla Towers. Twyla’s (over the top) outdoor compound.
“Twyla Towers’ will go over the door frame on both sides. Those are done; (Note how I don’t use the “T” word?) They’re completed. Still editing that line up. The small Budah, if it comes out, will be a part of that
I really like your blog. It’s whimsical, pleasantly amusing, a bit confusing and clearly has an artistic bent to it.
Our Editor Responds: for a newbie, I have to say, you kind of pegged it.
Oy. Life in the olden days must have been a bitch…with the possible exception that we both would have become the eldest child what with the sacrificial demise of our older firstborn siblings.
I like the idea of a smiling Buddha on your Mezuzahs. Mix it up.
Our Editor Responds: Middle childom had it’s privileges 5 thousand years ago. As for mixing it up, indeed. Kind of like those co-exist bumper stickers.
That’s a bit eerie.
Our Editor Responds: What part? my associations or my art.
“Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
I’m still going to throw them into the fire
Ooooooh I love mine. It has remarkable life.
Our Editor Responds: These have marketing potential. And I like the spiritual dimension. I have to give the ‘forever wonderful’ Sheila Greer credit for seeing them as a new spin on the Mezzuzah. She is so smart.
Seems all the mezuzahs I’ve seen are very traditional. Never seen one with a Buddha before, and I like it a lot.
Our Editor Responds: Did you see the turtle? thats my personal talisman. I also have a fish that I interchange with the turtle. And the pine comb is a coo coo clock weight (I have two variations on that)
A traditional Mezuzah has a place to put in a small prayer so I may try experimenting with a slit in the pine comb. Might work.
[…] See that mezzusah by my hat in the picture with the mayor? That was a mojo (good juju) gift from Pasadena Adjacent. I’m glad she’s making more of […]
My first reaction is a big OI VEH! of biblical proportions!
Our Editor Responds: Oi Vey is right! I’m taking on the old testament AND it’s enemies
I wish I had a connection to something as elemental as that kiln, the fire looks so deliciously wicked, I love that it can transform something without completely destroying it.
Our Editor Responds: If your husband can install a gas line, and you have the land, you can find a kiln on Craigs list.
You always have some of the best blog titles. This might give someone an idea for a future DoDah parade entry.
Our Editor Responds: It’s a head turner
Yikes. We live in a crazy world today, but it’s sane in comparison to Molekeh’s time. The kids look really cool, and I love the sound of them burning. Hopefully you finished the cooking before the scorching heat?
Yay for turtles!
Our Editor Responds: Remember my ceramic effigy? That might witch out well with the turtle. Me too – I love staring at the kiln. Fire and water
Oops…. make that Molekh.
Don’t want to incur the wrath of that mythical mofo by misspelling his name.
I think I’ll just wish you well with this.
Our Editor Responds: thanks

Gorgeous kids. I don’t see a fire though and I have been having trouble getting your blog to appear. Think I’ll just wait a while to see if more show up.
I used a different browser and it came up just fine :)
Are the kids glazed?
The B-Cats are lining up for the first fire (kind of disappointed that everyone else’s work seems to get into the fire, while my cats sit week after week) but the Mezuzahs (turtle and single head) did make the first fire. I’ll glaze them come Tuesday.
“Are the kids glazed?” Hahaha! That’s funny, Shanna. How r u? We really need a lttle get together to discuss among other things the price of these items of excruciatingly voodoo ala voe-dee-oh-doe magnatism to those outside the coven? I mean, oven. ahem.
Our Editor Responds: below
I have no idea what I just said. Hot and tired people should be banned from free speech.
Our Editor Responds: I understand everything you said. Hot and tired people should seek out solace over at Shanna’s – she has air an conditioner, a spectacular view and libations (and the bar opens as soon as she wakes up – early afternoon)
Should I arrange some flutes and tambourines for you to set the mood, PA? They’d be much more cheerful when played in these circumstances than Molekh’s.
Our Editor Responds: Sounds like a plan – don’t forget the macaroons
Love ’em. Weird, beautiful, funny . . . the best kind of art.
Our Editor Responds: Maybe not always at the same time, but thats my aim. Thanks
Love your ceramics! Very, very creative and original!
Our Editor Responds: Thanks Sonia. I’m getting ready to head over to see if my kids came out of the furnace un-cracked
Our Editor Responds: the mezuzah’s are out of the oven, glazed and waiting final firing – updates to come
