Wicked Ice Cream Series

Wicked Ice Cream Series

The Wicked Ice Cream Series (W.I.C.S.) is a style of pot I've been working on for a while now, and yes, the name came from everyone telling me that it looked like ice cream, so I figured I'd roll with it. Plus, you know, spikes are wicked... I feel some shout outs are in order, to Mike Vatalaro, Bill Brouillard, and John Oles for the bubbles and the scrunchies. I "appropriated" their techniques to arrive at this body of work.

This is probably the 3rd or 4th version of this style of lidded jar that I've made, but shares the most in common with the original Brain Child that I made in undergrad.

The latest stoppered bottle, the neck has been scrunchitized while the stopper is using some slip trailing techniques to make it look "creamier." Also, the spikes have been piped on with black thick slip, and have a much more organic feel to them now.

The latest in the Wicked Ice Cream series of T-Pots, CreamSickleSaurus Rex has the most movement and character yet out of the WICS T-Pots. The Xenomorph (the name of the Creature from Aliens) part of the title came about because the end of the spout does look like a mouth, and the whole spout is coming out of very liplike attachments, but my version is quite a bit more "cute" than its namesake. I realize it also kinda looks like a dinosaur, which happens.

One of the first attempts with the WICS series to really accentuate and add movement within the rolls. The incorporation of the scrunchies in the neck, spout an handle is reminiscent of the machine in Cat and the Hat.
