Well, the cups have been glazed and fired, the bowls are done, but not glaze fired yet, and today I finished my rendition of the famous Winchester Lion. This is for our mid-term project. I chose to write my paper and clay project on The Winchester Lion of the Shenandoah Valley. He was really fun to make, once I figured out how to make his mane. I punched holes in a credit card and used it in my clay extruder. Voli, fur!! I will post photos of Winchester, when he is done.
So far, I really love this class. So much so, I signed up for the ceramics II winter class. I am making and doing things I would have never even thought of doing before, and really enjoying it. I have met some very interesting people and the cone 10 clay and gas reduction kiln are all new experiences for me. Next project, "Self Portrait". That should be fun!!
