Week of May 16

This week I threw on the wheel. The first few days I was getting warmed up because I hadn't thrown in a while. Wednesday I made a plate. Thursday I got to know a potential replacement for Mr Runge.

Week of May 9

The past week I had no assigned projects so we just worked on whatever we wanted. I'm working on a Stonehenge type structure. It is a circular base with ring levels.

Week of May 1st

The past week, I finished my dragonfruit. I finished the structure and decided to add a texture. It took a while to figure out what pattern to do and then I though of the obvious. It's a dragonfruit, so I made a dragon pattern. Scales.

Week of April 25

This week we are starting  a new project, patterned vessels. For mine I am doing a patterned dragonfruit. I started by making a newspaper structure, then I put clay around it, then I added the spikes. I am now trying to figure out which pattern to use. I am trying out various tools and seeing the patterns they leave.

Week of April 18

This week in sculpture we continued to work on our lanterns. I have found this project to be particularly difficult. I cannot get it to stand. I decided to make it an elephant supporting the lantern. Next week I will finish the project and start another.

Week of April 11

The past week we have continued working on our lanterns. I am working on a smaller lantern. It has been very difficult to support the layers with clay. I am planning to add many more layers. This is the most challenging project we've done in my opinion and I'm excited to see others projects.

Week of April 4

The past week we have been working on Japanese lanterns. Mine will be modeled after a multiple story lantern. I am starting from the top to bottom. It's been really challenging making the parts stand up as the are very fragile.
