Title: Tan Matte Vessel, Crafts
No Image Available This and a few other larger vessels were the results from my first attempt at ceramics making. I greatly enjoy working with clay, but one of my greatest frustrations with working on the wheel is how easy it is to make a simple little mistake and render a piece completely, irreversibly, damaged. And then of course, when you finally manage a nice piece or two you'll happen to have chosen the one glaze that decided not to work that day. In spite of all of this, when it all manages to work out, you are left with a lasting and possibly useful piece of art. This vessel was one of my better efforts and while it wasn't the easiest decision, this is the one I chose to show. The height of this vessel represented the culmination of my efforts.
