A quick update before I jump into this post, because I’ve been gone for a while. I’m balls deep into the semester, and I have a much heavier workload than I did in fall, including three papers due every week and the fact that ceramics seems to be moving at a breakneck pace for me, especially since this is my first time touching and interacting with clay. It seems like I’m just barely getting the hang of something before we move on to the next project. I actually love ceramics. I’m terrible at it…in fact, most of my work looks like it was wheel thrown by a six-year-old with a frontal lobotomy…but I love it. I love it so much that I’m trying to figure out ways to continue playing with clay after I graduate and no longer have access to the awesome fully equipped ceramics studio on campus.

finished product of the semester!
