Hand-built plates by Kip O’Krongly Just a few of the women potters of Northfield were able to gather at Kip O’Krongly’s studio this past week to watch her demonstrate how she makes her wonderful handbuilt terra cotta plates. My first caveat in this tutorial is that Kip works with Terra Cotta and additionally, it is a custom recipe of hers. That said, I do believe most any Terra Cotta will work and possibly stoneware. What I’m really not sure about is if you could do this with porcelain! What you will need: A file folder or other heavyish card stock for templates Cutting tool like this or a needle tool Rolling pin and 2 ¼ “ thick sticks or a rolling pin like Kip has with rubber washers that set the depth or maybe a slab roller And an extruder that looks like a calking gun. Banding wheel(s) Scoring tool Water Yellow rib A beveling tool with a rubber tip Here we go: Lay your plate template down- she made hers from a file folder and laminated them.

“Two roads to Courage” | COLT + RANE Welcome to Pix-O-Sphere Magazine - Taste it. • Sabina Kelley Put up your dukes. International model sensation Sabina Kelley is ready to take you hostage with her switchblade stilettos. One part Bettie Page, another part centerfold, Sabina is outlasting trends that lay beaten and bludgeoned at her feet. You are a formally trained ballet dancer and a former Vegas showgirl. Hell ya! We think you would too. I discovered the world of burlesque with my love for pinups. As a modern pinup, you’ve really carved out a unique niche for yourself by being one of the first to really put a rockabilly tattooed twist on a Bettie Paige style. I think maybe in a way, but I was not intentionally doing that. There’s been some debate with photographers that we’ve talked to that the communities like SucideGirls and GodsGirls are a fading trend. I’m not part of SuicideGirls or GodsGirls, but I do agree that SuicideGirls and GodsGirls are fads. You and Anne Lindfjeld were recently featured in Playboy together. Switchblade Stilettos is the name of your site.

DIY Wrap Bracelet You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists. The more, the better. In fact . . . the most, the best! With that being said, we’ll show you how to master a version of the ever so popular wrap bracelet. You’ll need (for a double wrapped bracelet) :* Lengths will vary depending on the size of your wrist (see comments for suggestions). Fold the length of leather cording in half to form a loop. Place the ball chain along the leather cording with the end of the chain meeting the end of the wrap. Continue wrapping while checking it for fit around the wrist. When you have reached the end of the ball chain wrap the linen cording around the leather strands 2-3 more times. Thread the hex nut through the strands and tie a second knot. Trim with scissors and your wrap bracelet is finished!! The materials are listed for a double wrap bracelet. It’s a party!
