clay, oxides, glazes, metallic rubbing compounds & nail polish
Let me introduce you to senior Sarah Chang,
my top most Ceramics student this year.
She recently finished one of her first projects of the year,
this delicate take on a rainstick.
Sarah was required to build her rainstick to at least 18 inches,
one of the tallest pieces she has made to this point.
Slab built with hundreds of tiny clay balls inside to provide the sound when you tip the stick.
As you will start to notice,
whenever I post one of Sarah's pieces this year,
she brings great sensitivity to whatever she produces.
She is developing a unique style and we all love it.
To finish off this piece she was required to bring other color to it
in addition to the glazes and oxides.
She chose to rub her sweet little birds with metallics,
and she painted their beaks with nail polish.
She was also required to embellish it with at least two different media.
I adore her choices.
They are so perfect.

I'm so pleased to be able to share this for you Sarah.
