H.P. Lovecraft - The Pipers of Azathoth by zombiequadrille
H.P. Lovecraft - The Pipers of Azathoth

H.P. Lovecraft – The Pipers of Azathoth

Variously, H.P. Lovecraft described his creation ‘Azathoth’ as follows: “Outside the ordered universe is that amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity—the boundless daemon sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud, and who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes.”…."in the spiral black vortices of that ultimate void of Chaos wherein reigns the mindless daemon-sultan Azathoth". “…Ultimate Chaos, at whose center sprawls the blind idiot god Azathoth, Lord of All Things, encircled by his flopping horde of mindless and amorphous dancers, and lulled by the thin monotonous piping of a demoniac flute held in nameless paws."

My attempt at anthropomorphizing the ‘Pipers’ into something within the capacity of the human mind to comprehend.  Azathoth remains a bubbling chaos with a hint of spiral vortices.  Sculpture is about 13 inches tall.

H.P. Lovecraft - Deep One Hybrid Death Mask by zombiequadrille
H.P. Lovecraft - Deep One Hybrid Death Mask
 

From De Horrore Cosmico, a collection of six original scenarios for the Cthulhu Invictus game from Golden Goblin Press.

The Death Mask of Magnus Murma: Romans honored their dead by having a wax mask of the recently departed made before their burial or cremation. A very unusual mask was found recently in Sicily, depicting one of the most famous gladiators of the age. His name was Magnus Murma, a Murmillo gladiator who was never seen in public without his full helmet on. He founded a school and passed on the mantle of his name like a title, so that there would always be a Magnus Murma performing, an eternal warriors upon the sands of countless arenas.  Upon the death of the original Magnus Murma, his helmet was removed for the casting of his death mask, and his dark secret finally revealed.     Oscar Rios

This mask of Magnus Murma, the Deep One Hybrid, was made as a backers premium for De Horrore Cosmico  is cast resin that it tinted to resemble beeswax (from which the original ancient Roman masks were made) It is roughly life sized, measuring 5 1/2" wide (wraps around 9") so if it were made flat (which it can't be) it would be 9". It is 8 1/2" tall (wraps to just over 11") that is again, if made flat - 11".

Cassilda and the King in Yellow by zombiequadrille
Cassilda and the King in Yellow

Cassilda and the King in Yellow

Photographs found in an old photo album purchased in a box lot at a local auction.   The reverse of each says ‘Cassilda and the King in Yellow’.

 In Robert W. Chambers’ book “The King in Yellow”, three characters are mentioned in the play in book form entitled “The King in Yellow”; they are Cassilda, Camilla, and the Stranger (who may be the King in Yellow).  While the relationship of the characters is never described, I have described with my sculpture “Cassilda and the King in Yellow”.  Cassilda has a carnival stick mask and looks fondly up at the King, who meets her gaze and embraces her protectively.  This piece was completed and the first copy painted in full colors to serve as a decoration for a wedding cake of a special couple.  I was pleased with the result and decided to make copies with a silver/gold finish (a tremendous savings in painting time) with a good result (I think). The sculpture is about five and a half inches tall.  Original made of Sculpey, copies in resin.

Copies of this sculpture are available  for $35 plus shipping.  Contact me at zombiequadrille@hotmail.com for details.

Cthulhu Cultist Obsidian Knife and Ivory Talisman by zombiequadrille
Cthulhu Cultist Obsidian Knife and Ivory Talisman
Cthulhu Cultist Obsidian Knife, sheath, and possible Ithaqua/Windwalker amulet obtained during Albert Arnold Mill’s Alaskan Expedition of 1935. Items are of indeterminate age, made from locally obtained materials; obsidian, walrus ivory, caribou, and Snowshoe hare. Both items stylistically bear some similarity to artwork of indigenous peoples of the Northwestern part of North America, and are suggestive of their Sino-Siberian ancestry.

Notes from Mill’s diary from June through August 1935 describe an expedition to the interior of Northern Alaska Mill had made after conversations with Stephen Jones, who was a fellow resident of London, a dilettante and sometime collector and seller of macabre artworks and artifacts from whom Mill had obtained a number of artifacts.

Dagger and talisman are resin, knife sheath is leather and fur hide.

Copies of this sculpture are available for $65  plus shipping.  Contact me at zombiequadrille@hotmail.com for details.

I'm an avid fan of H.P. Lovecraft, the Lovecraft Circle, and new stories about the Cthulhu Mythos. I enjoy creating things relating to this genre and enough interest was shown by others that I decided to make and sell a few of each. My sculpture originals are made from plastiline clay, Super Sculpey, or Monster Clay. Silicone molds are then made and copies of figures are made in resin and painted. When possible I create fictional documentation to support the 'authenticity' of my relics.

For further information please feel free to contact me at zombiequadrille@hotmail.com

Also, several of my sculptures are available through the Lovecraft Ezine lovecraftzine.com/.

You're welcome, and thanks for the fav on mine. You have some really nice work on your page. I wish my skill set was more diversified. I'd love to do some stone sculpting some time, but time is running out for an old man like me and I don't think I'll ever get to all the projects I'd like to do.

If it comes to that, I am pretty sure that there will be plenty of stuff I want to do undone after I been done with this life. =)
Soapstone is a good start-stone I feel, thou the dream is working in marble. =) Or maybe onyx.

Hey - you seemed the person to ask this of - have you ever had Sculpie Clay chemically react with plastic?

Because this Plastic wheel I use to hold Copper wire has melted by contact with Room temperature sculpie over - let's say, 9 months.

Should I be concerned?

Hi, Personally, no, but I did a little research and will quote it in part - "and I know from experience that original Sculpey WILL interact with some plastics! A piece got left atop a television, and when it was peeled off to be baked (unsalvageable), there was a large patch of altered texture on the tv, where instead of smooth and hard it had become soft and rather grainy. The piece in question was unusable because some of the plastic had apparently liquefied and soaked into the Sculpey. All 3 (SCULPEY TYPES) will leave large oil stains on paper if left to sit more than a few minutes unbaked, and personal experience also tells me Super Sculpey will eat some wood finishes right off the furniture. I also know that if you paint original Sculpey with Testor model car enamel paints, the paint will never dry. This speaks of a chemical reaction that would really have me questioning using any kind of Sculpey around fragile or sensitive living things".
So there you go!
