I am glad you are here! Ceramics is a complicated course - however if you follow it step by step you will do great work! It is fun and challenging.
You will learn how to think like an artist, work like an artist - in fact be a more creative person all around.
I hope you take advantage of the studio time to make projects which express all that is in you. I can teach skills but you already are a creative person.
One gas kiln is out - it's a little overdone.... sorry....
some of the clay body itself may have bubbled! Wow what an effect!
Last day to turn in your clean up sheet..
You can still grade what is out of the kiln today, today - ONLY
Clean out your lockkers. Also Notice all projects from the glaze room are now on the table. empty out all lockers that are not empty and put stuff on tables - UNLESS they are returning students - lockers are marked.
