Learning to fly by GilmourApatosaur Learning to fly by GilmourApatosaur
Song Response project. This is a man who has the determination to do something that nobody else would dare try, hence fly like a bird. The song this was based off was Pink Floyd's 'Learning to Fly.'
This is one of my best ceramic pieces. I couldn't take it away from school until I graduated since my instructor loved it so much she put it on display without my permission. Then again, I wanted people to see this.

that's a wonderful idea!
it's hard to find an art piece that fits a song that much

Thanks for the fav:thumbsup: I didn't realize this works so well. When I first submitted this on here it went unnoticed, but now that I sent it to a group it's suddenly getting nonstop faves.

That is awesome! :wow: Wow! I love the concept. I love this song and this piece fits it so well. If I was your art teacher, I'd want to put this on display too, but I think I would have asked for your permission. :D How long did this take you? And do you mind if I recommend it as a submission to one of the Pink Floyd groups?

This took me about a month to work on, since the firing took a long time to do. Yeah you can add it, I should add it to another group too, now that you mention it...

It was definitely well worth the time, cause you did an amazing job on it. :D
You should, there certainly is enough Pink Floyd groups from which to choose from. :nod:

Along with my other old ceramic pieces. I can't link to the photo itself, but it'll give you an opportunity to find my other ceramics, one of them containing me at 18:lol:. Look for numbers 144, 145, 17, 170, 171, 39, and 77

That's one of the songs ever from pink-floyd..i took a discovery flight once in indiana, where they let you have the controls of a cessna for take off, flytrhough and landing and this song really embodies that feeling...your sculpture is pretty original and a fine tribute to that very feeling...like otto lilienthal and the wright brothers....kudos!
