October 22

Ceramics Annual of America, San Francisco, Oct. 6-9
I met with my mentor on Wednesday.  Once again, I had piece fall off the wall because the work came out of the kiln the night before and glue hadn't set.  At least I was able to put it together and now feel that I can move on.  Robert suggests I continue with the smaller additive pieces to complete the semester's work since the larger cup pieces consume a lot of time.  He also recommends I limit color use to focus on form. 

Catch a Wave, cup runneth over. 26"l x 18"w x 8"d. Wall mount. Hand built white earthenware, underglaze, mason stain, glaze, gold luster.
