Another Semester is winding down, and what a Semester it was in the clay room The kick wheels were met with great enthusiasm as always, but this was short lived as the need to express creatively soon took hold and the class shifted into the world of sculpture. I love to see where a class' direction can shift, and this Semester resided in the world of imaginary creatures, puzzled portraits and totem animals. Raku firings were a hit, as the flames and luster glazes simply added to the edgy attitude most sculptures begged to find a finish to match the nature of the piece itself. Needless to say, as an instructor the Semester was much like a Disneyland ride, filled with fun, fantasy and joyful artful sharing.
