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 ;-))
