Ceramics 1

Week 1 at Art School - p.1

Wow, what an inspiring day its been. I've started my art foundation course!

Today our group of 15 were in the ceramics studio. WONDERFUL! I like ceramics, but have never been really inspired to actually make anything out of clay. I was SOOOOO inspired today though - even got a ceramics book out of the library to get ideas for small projects. We learnt about clay, slip casting and making plaster of paris. This explaining of all the methods took a while and so we only had a couple of hours in the end to PLAY. But we did. And we have another full day in the ceramics studio next week, so I'll update with pictures of stuff I've experimented with and made, then.
