You don't have to be in college to do this I do rakuing through my local art center and it's loads of fun Also, if you don't have an art center near you that offers ceramic classes, some local potters in your area might. I strongly encourage checking it out
Well, yeah, I know (: There are some pottery and crafting centres near where I live too! It's just a matter of finding the time now... ):
I just said that because, in college, there is ONLY time to do art, now I have a full-time job and the lack of free time that goes with that... and car/apartment/insurance/loan payments (and the lack of money that goes with that!).
I really want to get back behind the wheel again... I have such appreciation for your pieces because I know all the work that goes into them. (:
I can sort of relate to that I'm a graduating senior in high school and with school, a part time job, volunteering and an internship keep me pretty busy ^_^' It makes me sad I don't get to work on art more but, like you said, that's what college is for. And it's nice to have someone that appreciates the work I put into them. Honestly, I love your stuff because it looks like it takes a LOT of patience with all those tiny ring which I kinda lack
Yeah! We artists tend to appreciate each other more than people who haven't done anything like this before. I'm sure (if you sell your pieces) you run into the same thing as I do, "why does it cost so much?!" ...well I'd like to make more than 25 cents an hour thank you! When I buy jewellery or other art from artisans I know I'm paying for their time and effort, and I'm willing to support them because I appreciate the unique aspect of getting something custom and handmade! Thanks for the compliments... I'm glad you like my stuff!! <3
