Punch Bowl Progression

First day: 6 bowls attempted, 1 bowl completed... Second day: 7 bowls attempted, 3 bowls completed... Third day: 5 bowls attempted, 0 bowls completed...

I had set out to make an elegant punch bowl to go with my elegant goblets, but it took some getting used to 7 lbs of clay. I've been hesitant to throw that much in the past since either I didn't care to, or I was afraid to. I consider that 2nd day a success, although the 3rd was a disappointment and I decided my body had taken enough torture, so I moved on to mugs. A week and a half later my lower back is still in pain. Lovely.

Inaugural Post

I've started this blog because I figured it would be quicker and easier than starting a full-bodied website, and it seems a tad more professional than a myspace page to inform the masses of my artistic adventures. I'm a ceramic artist posing as a full-time student, in reality only taking one credit of coursework because I can't afford any more. I'll be graduating in May and I do plan to start a website, so if you have any suggestions on where to start, please comment. I have access to Dreamweaver, but have little experience in web design, and even less money to pay someone. As for this blog... I plan to post photos and write about my progress in the studio in my last semester at the University. Stay tuned, and thanks for reading!
