The Kiln Has Cooled!

I have never, ever taken a ceramics class in my life. I took ceramics I this semester and loved it. I have glazed work before, but never thrown my own work. This semester I made many small pieces and when they came out I was very pleased. Some bowls, mugs, small vases, cups, and oil burners. There are alot of pictures.

After the show...

The photo final show went great, lots of good food and good people.  


In Photo I this semester one of our assignments was to capture motion in our photos. I must say I had a lot of trouble with this assignment. We had to pan, (which is following the moving subject with the camera) also we were assigned to have a shot with the subject moving/the background still, the background blurry/subject still, and finally a still action type shot. I must admit it was frustrating, I shot 5 rolls and was not particularly thrilled with my final shots. I will hopefully have the chance go back to that assignment with a digital and try again.
