Hand Building 1

These are both from my first ceramics class, Hand Building 1, from the Spring 2008 semester. This is one of the Argonath from The Lord of the Rings, made from two slabs:

This is a model of a cob house. It's still bone-dry in the pictures, but I never glazed it, so it doesn't look too different now. I may glaze it some day, and seed the roof with chia grass or herbs like I had planned. The passive solar design would make the house pretty warm if you actually built it:

Series 1 - Drawing 2

My drawing professor, Thuan Vu, has us do two series per semester.  You choose the subject and it must have at least five pieces.  I had recently fallen in love with a Pentel brush with a built-in ink reservoir, so I picked a subject and style that suited it.  Thus: noodly lines!  (Also, I seem to have lost the first one, but it wasn't as good as the rest anyway)

2/5 | 18" x 24" | ink

3/5 | 18" x 24" | ink

4/5 | 18" x 24" | ink

5/5 | 18" x 24" | ink


I did these for Drawing 2 in the Fall of 2008:

This Train | soft pastel
