Today we started carving our forms.
& I'm not much in love with the surface design I went with.
I probably should have come to class more prepared...
I just couldn't bring myself to do anything more organic than free form stripes.
I think I should have made less marks on the vertical form
and I dont know, just not done the horizontal stripes.
The funny thing is everyone in the class really likes the horizontal bands.
I was still working on my forms when some students from another class showed up
and started working on their stuff.
I was actually embarrassed with my work in front of me
though no one here seems to be judging or have an ego about their work
which is lovely.
One woman had this phenomenal camel just come out of the kiln
and it got me thinking about what i could make that would inspire me more.
(the only vases I have came with flowers other people sent me
apart from a set of 3 I made years ago
with left over clay from something or other).
I think its time to play more...
