I have been having such fun. Last fall I decided that I was deprived by living at the Oregon Coast away from continuing education in my chosen fields of interest. Such as Mosaic, Quilting Arts, Ceramic etc. I was also feeling the need to get some fresh information to share with my clay students that I teach on Tues and Thurs. So I signed up to study with a wonderful woman who has been doing clay for 40 years. You would think that would make her very old, but she started young and has such a sweet style of teaching and sharing that my creative imagination with clay has blossomed. Leslie Green, you are a gift. Have learned much each Monday for the 2 hour class. I drive with with my good friend Dorian to Philomath, just west, over the coast range, an hour and a half a way. Totally worth the trip each week. The drive is beautiful with lots of wildlife and varied vegetation.
This sphere was finished this weekend and I am really pleased with the way it turned out. It is 31″ around the middle, about the size of a basketball. It was a very fun process to learn and I am hoping to make many more. This one was “stamped” with a broken sunflower tile, giving it a mosaic look. I look forward to Monday’s now ;-))
