Special Student Thoughts:

So being back in school is a combination of: creating, doubting, creating, getting stuck, rethinking it all (and life), making more work anyway, questioning, distracting oneself with self-guided tours (snooping) in the studio, hitting up the thrift stores, acquiring unnecessary crap at rummage sales, making more work, more self-doubt, excitement, developing ideas, creativity, watching cool people create cool things, observing amazing firings, making new friends, watching a bit too much of television, watching a bit too little of the leaves changing, getting to the studio, getting stumped at the studio, creating, getting dirty, making order, making decisions, worrying about the next round of school, making contacts, learning, growing, changing, and creating all the while trying to maintain my identity and develop it further towards the person I want to be.

Here's my first finished piece at Alfred:



The piece is yet to be titled, the background square is 12" x 12", and the materials are clay and electrical tape. Nu?
