Experimental Animation Meets Pottery

Experimentalanimation-pottery

Animator Jim Le Fevre, whom I posted about way back in 2008 (See here: “Phonographantasmascope”), teamed up with Roops and Al Johnstone to make a fantastic phonotrope animation for the Crafts Council.

Roops and Al Johnstone make earthenware under the name RAMP, which stands for Roop and Al Make Pots. I can only imagine how anxious they must have been waiting for this thing to fire in the kiln, hoping nothing went wrong after all their hard work.

Gold-plated Skate Rail (shown below) and Walnut Skate Ramp (after the jump). Other works include buffing a legal wall at Venice Beach.
