Sculptin' up a storm

Posted to Utterances




The only thing I ever "sculpted" with is clay. I guess you could call it pottery. But I would call it sculpting. You're sculpting it into a form, or creating. I used red and white clay and made weird constellation looking pieces, and pieces that were decorative but useful like something in a shape that you could put stuff in, like watches, painted it, fired it, glazed, it yee-hah. I carved up some sculptures from plaster of paris with special carving knives, and painted and glazed those, etc. I never got to do the "real" stuff, like working on a potters wheel or whatever. Never got to work with interesting materials. You should do it. Art is fun, even if you're not a master at it. If the class doesn't have a pre-requisite, than likely you'll be in with a lot of beginner's. I always wanted to take a drawing class, like a figure class, or a charcoal class, myself. Learn to draw people much better. The good thing about art is that you might end up with a cool life-time hobby or perhaps can make extra moo-lah at it, outside of school later. Like sometimes people buy sculptures and so forth.
