Potters Still Need CrackZapIt!

The Clay Gallery, page 3

Handbuilt Clay Self- (and dog) portrait

This is a potters oldie but goodie of my dog and I zonked out at the beach.

Appropriately titled, Old Man and His Dog at The Beach

Cone 10 gas reduction, colored clays and underglaze applied 'sans' clear on the trunks.

Little, about 10" in diameter.

Another in a series of tall combo hand and thrown pots, 22" tall.

I threw the 'nozzle' and base pieces, then layed out a large slab, drew Fantasy Portrait of My Wife to Be with a sharp stick...

..stood it up and joined it around a cylinder form covered with newspaper, which acts as a 'release' so you can get the plastic cylinder out.

(Told ya that earlier, but repetition is an important tenant of teaching, and I just can't he'p it!) {;>)

I let it harden up just a bit, and then pushed the forms out from the inside for a bas relief effect. Allowed it to dry a bit more and then put it on the base, attached the 'nozzle'.

Cone 5 Electric, underglazes/engobes.

Handbuilt and Thrown Relief Sculpture Vase
Tall Relief Portrait Slab and Thrown Vase

This is the tallest in the series, 24"...

...of the future wife fantasy portraits, Wife With Flowers By The Window

Cone 5 Electric with underglazes/engobes, same kind of construction.

(Could'a called it 'Hair Like A Cloud').

These pots sure helped me focus my anxiety/anticipation waiting for the (best) wife!

Folks Love CrackZapIt!
Because ...

          It Works!

"Thank you so much for this wonderful product. As an art teacher and child care giver I was washing my hands quite a bit. It wasn't long before I developed those painful cracks on my fingers. It got to the point where I couldn 't do the crafts I enjoy. I've tried everything but nothing worked until I used CrackZapit! Hooray! I will certainly be spreading the word about this miracle in a tube as I keep spreading it on my sore, cracked digits.Thanks again ! "

-Janet in Philadelphia, PA 

"We purchased CrackZapIt! On vacation this summer at Murdoch's in Craig, Colorado. My husband gets horrible cracks on his thumb and I noticed this at the checkout counter. I thought," Why not? "And purchased a tube. OMG! This was the best purchase ever !! His thumb cracks disappeared within a day. We both used it on our trip through Colorado to Yellowstone and Glacier. We now recommend it to everyone ... Thanks for a great product. "

-Nancy, Omaha, NE, 

"This is the only stuff that worked on my hand cracks .... and I've turned it on to my bartender friends in Mexico Beach, FL and they loved it !!!" (Ed.Note: Yes! It works in humid Florida where folks STILL get finger and thumb cracks!)


"I have eczema on my fingers and I tried CRACK ZAP IT and it was very soothing. It healed up so quickly like magic! It has helped tremendously and I decided to carry one tube in my purse all the time. My husband tried it on his cracked finger tips, it worked great and the result was amazing. We want to buy a few CRACK ZAP IT so we can give them as gifts to our friends and family .... "


" During the winter months, my fingers crack right at the tip on the edge of the nail. In addition to being painful it's hard to do small delicate tasks because of soreness and bandaids. I used CrackZapIt one time and over night my fingers were starting to heal and I could get rid of the bandaids. This is a "must carry in your pocket" for anyone who works outdoors. "


"I carry a tube with me all the time. It's always available to use at any time and really stops the pain of finger cracking. It helps heal the cracks in the creases of my fingers. In the winter time I'm never without it ! "


"Great for those cracks on your fingertips. I love it so much I'm getting some for my mom. Better than anything I've ever tried!"

-New Hampshire

"Heals dry cracked and bleeding fingers like magic. Nothing else even comes close. Its the only way we can get through the winter around here! Don't ever stop selling it please!"


I have found they work best together by applying the CRACKZAPIT first to any open areas, then apply the O'Keefe's. Then enjoy your painfree healing hands! "
