A Drunk Cage Clay Creation

After I took Annette Lansing's Beginning Clay Handbuilding class at the Multnomah Art Center I was kind of hooked. I love getting my hands dirty and I love the way she teaches the class (and I also love the fact that Paul is there as her assistant!). After "passing" the beginning class, I signed up to take her "intermediate" class.

Same teacher, same assistant but a new added feature....."CAT" my brain professor would also be taking it with me (I have also talked her into joining me in the International Collage Collaborative and The Sketchbook Project)! We had our places right next to each other and only got threatened once to be put at opposite ends of the classroom (okay, maybe more than once) for excessive talking and laughing.

Each week we would learn new techniques - from making chachki's to bowls to facial masks.

Kristi thinks my mask looks like a drunk Nicholas Cage from Leaving Las Vegas!

I never would have thought that I could have made a face - I love it (and Kristi wants to steal it) as well as my tiny three legged vessel!

I signed up yesterday for Annette's next clay class. A quick email to Paul and he will be there as well! Can't wait to see what we will be creating next and who I'll be getting dirty with.

  1. You are definitely a clay artist and have discovered yet another passion. The face is a marvel and I see why your daughter wants to steal it. And for the record, I, too, like Nick Cage.
