New semester, new ceramics!
This is just some of the stuff from the latest firing. I have more coming out tomorrow and a critique tomorrow night.
A set of bowls for a Synir:

Some mugs that came out really crappy o_O The glaze crawled and we're not entirely sure why. And blehhh.

A bowl I was using to test a new glaze and it combo'd with an existing glaze. SUPER HAPPY.

I love them all! The bowls for Synir and Biscuit are so cute, I love that green color. And the new glaze effect is very cool, and I even like the mugs that glazed and fired funny. :) I've been wanting to go to a ceramics class for a long time, your beautiful work continues to inspire! :)

You should do it! It's horribly addicting. XD And by addicting, I really mean addicting. >_> Come breaks, I get this itch to play with clay and don't have a place to and aaaugh. D:
I'm hoping my funky glaze combo is replicatable. :3

I'm sure I'd get addicted! I've been craving a creative outlet lately, this just might be it! We need new mugs... :)

I'd probably carry clay in my pocket and play with it. And then I'd wind up making something I really like, somewhere really random, and have to figure out how to get it back to the kiln without destroying it. :coverlaff:

I love it, our ceramics class at school is no more so i never got to take it. @sarah, have you tried melting crayons on papper to make intresting splashes of color? Its the best i can offer.

XD Another week, Syn. one more week! (hopefully)

Sarah, I dunno that I'd carry clay in your pocket o_o Definitely carry a small sketchbook though. XD

Dimi, that is a serious shame. :/ The community college cut us down to one class ...but is expanding our studio. gofigure.

I'd put it in a ziplock bag first! :)

When I was a kid I'd color a sheet of paper with sploches of color, then color over it in black, and use a popsickle stick to carve out neat patterns in the black wax :)

Gorgeous! That looks amazing, and really professionally done the way the pattern covers the whole thing.

Thank you tereghan :) It's taken some time to get here.
We had a critique last night and here is some of the stuff from the critique:

This piece got mixed reviews. I'm happy with it, but my instructor and a few others didn't like it. I'm welcomed to any CC from everyone else if anyone has any to give.

This piece, I don't particularly care about the eyes, but rather like it overall
