Woo-Hoo, It Whistles!


One of the most memorable moments in the life of a Whitney ceramics student is when they get their clay pot to whistle.  It's an awesome ah ha moment in their young lives.  :)

They have choices as to how they finish them off after they've been sawdust fired.  With a glue/water solution to bring out the richness of the carbon or by rubbing with metallic compounds to add a touch of color.
Senior Anne Allan was fortunate, the gods smiled on her whistle to leave beautiful markings.

Both seniors Jocelyn Kim and Megan Yeu chose to add a bit of color for a very appealing look.

Then junior Erin Hsiao and Neha Jain went all out with their color for two very striking pieces.

And seniors Derrick Lin, Darren Fang and junior William Lin were blessed with lovely markings on their clay.  
Great job all of you on a very challenging assignment!
