This semester I'm only actually taking one real illustration class, so what am I wasting the rest of my time with? Well this is a big part of it, ceramics class way too fun. Today I did my first raku firing, which makes the top blueish looking bottle. The photo doesn't do justice to how metallic it actually looks though, it actually looks like blue metal which blows my mind. Unfortunately its decently toxic so I cant use it on the plates and bowls I've been making lately, but there's plenty of time left I suppose for more silly vases and such. These are just a few of the ones I have managed to lug back home so far, I have at least 25 or 30 ceramic pieces done.  So I'll keep updating my ceramic work as the semester rolls along, because it's quickly becoming one of my more favorite classes. weee

;-D Be very, very careful... Clay is addictive! I was a drawing major that switched to clay after my first ceramics class. I still draw and paint, mind you, but I do a lot of it on clay instead of paper or canvas!

Have fun!! :-D
