New Ceramics Blog: Week 1

Since this is our first week back, and my starting week in ceramics 3, I thought I would try my hand at a new batch of clay (cool black clay that I’ve never used before) and make something before I started on my first project. It’s going to be a simple box with a design on it, but I don’t know what yet. I’m thinking of some ideas but nothing set in stone yet.


Week 16: Final crit, part 2.

We’re down to the Monday group, so I got to go today. I have to say, I was pretty disappointed on how my stuff turned out. I had expected to look completely different from how it did. I think that this is due in part to the delay on the cone 10 kiln, so I didn’t get to reference the test tiles I had made when glazing my stuff. In spite of my misgivings and apprehensiveness, however, I was assured that my pieces did turn out visually better than what I thought they did.
