  1. Very sad news, I will not be able to take ceramics next semester...it looks like my hobby will be put on hold for quite some time, as we currently do not have the finances to set up the rest of the necessary equipment in our current space.

      $20 per item??? That does not make any sense. Lump it together until you have like 5 for $20 or something. The rates here just to use the facilities are insane.

      I know, I think it's ridiculous. There is no way the whole firing even costs $20!

  2. Thank you Nerd! I do believe it is one of my best mugs so far. (:

    First semester back in clay after 3 year hiatus. Still very much new, and always learning!
  4. Did a horse-hair firing tonight. Got great results with the sulfuric acid!

      Haha, I would not know! The professor gave it to us. From her horse. I forgot to use the lions mane we had left over too (yes real lion, we have a teaching zoo on campus).

      Wow, I never heard of a lion petting zoo! I guess the crocodile petting zoo didn't work out! :)

  5. It is a lovely green. Trinkets and tiny things always get me, so cute!

    Dragons are my favorite. Would love a large piece as gorgeous as yours!
  7. Student Ceramics Sale is tomorrow, putting a few of my best pots up for sale. Great way to see others work, professors are very encouraging.

      Yes! I kept my favorites, the strawberry pot in my gallery was one, as well as a few mugs. My stuff got so much more even-walled and light towards the end of the semester, you can really see the difference in just 3 months. Excited to go again next semester!

      Sale is going great so far. Sold over 3/4 of my pieces. I think they are running it today too, so I will pick the left overs up next week.

  8. Thank you Mark! I agree, I have a plant obsession !
  9. Fantastic design! I love it!
  10. This is absolutely incredible. I am in love with this glaze!
  11. Decided to take up sewing and knitting to occupy me until the new ceramics semester in January...

      Any glaze books on what each material is and used for? IE: copper is for oranges, yellows, blues and reacts like x,y,z in these conditions....

      Knitting not coming along well, sewing is fun.

  12. That's it folks. Ceramics semester is over... it's going to be a long two months....

  13. Found a medium-small high fire Paragon kiln never used for less than $300... Now I just need to convince my husband where to get $300 from!

      I paid $175.00 for broken down, A82B Paragon. $300 is a steal. Bricks falling apart and I need new elements. I dannae if she can take any more, Captain! You can't mix matter and anti-matter cold! I need a scotch, Scotty. Aye Captain.
