Winter 2014 ceramics

The ceramics classes have always been busy, usually I have had to run a second class each week, however this Winter saw a marked drop in intake; possibly the doldrum (at best) state of the economy, coupled with depression over the fairly-unique flooding situation along the Thames and elsewhere. I post therefore only three pictures, two of Ana working on her bust in low-fire black clay based on a New Guinea 'Nimba' mask of the 20th Century, and Andrea with one of her small but sophisticated coil pots, in a high-fire black clay ready for drying and firing.
