We tried to wait patiently for all our classmates to arrive, taking turns taking photos while we waited.
We took a group shot (missing Crystal, who arrived a few minutes later), and then formed our bucket brigade, to unload and admire each piece. I'm glad Fredi posted our group photo. What a nice group of people, I have enjoyed working with them, and enjoying their creativity.
I will be posting more photos when I have time and energy, and good lighting for photos. I want to take my time and enjoy taking photos, so I may take a while to work through them. But in the meantime, I'll give you a photo of my friend Cindy with her weird duck creation. It brought a smile to my face, and I love the crackly texture from the "Cobra" glaze :
Our teacher Jay was demonstrating bubble glazing the other day. I have been wanting to try it for some while, and I also had a few pieces which had enough smooth surface area (not easy to find, with my love for textures) which was suitable for it. So I decided to go for it. With the help of my friend Cindy (it turns out the bubble glazing benefits from extra hands!!), I glazed these pieces :
I was glad to see a few more people inspired to try it also, like my friend Karie. Look at the size of those bubbles :
So now I wait, for the next chance to start picking up finished pieces. But I'm fortunate also to be signed up with a workshop with Tony Clennell next weekend. So I won't be away from clay for long. Not to mention, I keep a small stash of odds and ends in my garage, in case I feel the sudden need to stick my fingers into some.
