Whimsical Teapot Workshop

We had a fun and prosperous workshop for Pinion Hill Gallery in La Veta CO in June.

We had 5 participants plus Nicole Copel the gallery owner. The participants cerated a variety of wonderfully whimsical teapots.

We enjoyed 4 fun filled days of creating. I will post pictures of the girls finished teapots.

Summer at Fort Hays

Here are a couple or the pieces that i made this summer in the Clay Plus One Workshop with Linda Ganstrom. I took two classes this summer. These are the first classes in my MFA program at FHSU. This was an intense workshop. We had an amazing group of highly talented people. We learned many new techniques form molding and surface treatments. We had a treasure hunt to find objects to incorporate into our sculptures. This was a wonderful experience as well as a great aya to kick off my new adventure at FHSU. In both of these figures I have used encaustic wax as a new surface treatment on their clothing.
