I've been wanting to try my hand at ceramics for awhile, I just love how pliable and transformative it can be. I've worked with clay and I knew that I was a miserable hand-builder; keep me away from the wheel unless you want to be splattered! But I knew learning some new casting techniques, that I'd be able to do some really great things. The possibilities are seriously limitless.
Take, for example, what ShiKai Tseng (an art grad student from London) did with his vases:
Here's a great video explaining Tseng's process!
I can't wait to see what we'll be able to make clay do by the end of the semester, as well!
