ceramic time!


This evening Keith and I hit up the UCSD crafts center to check on our clay creations. The crafts center is a totally cool place to take classes like ceramics, jewelry making, metal working, photography , and even a neon class! I convinced Keith to start taking classes with me and now hes hooked. Oh, whats also great about the ceramic class is that you have access to the studio 24/7 just as long as it doesn't interfere with another class.

New session starts next week and I'm excited. I'm hoping to start making my sci-fi themed pottery.. lets see if this works out. I got the idea for it when I accidentally squished a dent into a vase i was carving, so instead of trying to cover it up and make it look smooth, I continued the dents all around the vase... which then resembled a space ship.. sorta... well I think so :)

the only sucky part of ceramics is trying to find your peice amongst the rest after the first firing

my glazing creation today... next week we will see what it turns out like.. ooooo
