I like to post photos of the pieces when they are done in clay, because with the raku process, they don't all survive. That, and the techniques I use, create pieces that push the parameters of what clay can do!
Every year my students amaze me. In only a short period each day, they can focus and create some really great pieces using their skills, concentration, and imagination. With such eager and willing fingers, they celebrate Art every day!
