Just a tiny bit of time, so ceramics stuff!
My favorite class last semester by far was Ceramics. This is Sensei--he took my picture, so I figured I could take his. :P At the end of the semester there was an exhibition of all of our work, and Sensei takes very nice photographs of our best works. Here are my four pieces:
Bowl, white clay, dipping sekai over tessha (R.F.), W.10 cm, H.6 cm.
Cup, red clay, blowing under glaze paint speckles, sekkai (R.F.), W.6.5cm H.5cm.
Bowl, red clay, Dipping tessha and sekkai separately (R.F.), W.11.5cm H.5.5cm.
Vase, white clay, dipping shirohagi on outside over black (R.F.), W.5cm H.7cm.
My favorite is the first one. The vase looks cooler in person, methinks. To see what other people in my class did, check out this page.
Little linguistic note--"Sensei" means "teacher" in Japanese. The characters literally mean "prior/earlier life", or one who came before. Whenever you talk to a teacher, you refer to them as Sensei. Sometimes I forget ceramics Sensei's name (Inomata) because I never ever hear it, hehe. In Japan the teacher/student relationship is considered lifelong. In the US you may call your professor by their first name after a time, but in Japan Sensei will always be Sensei, even 15 years down the road.
Now, time to run off to watch some Hana Yori Dango, which may be a post all to itself at some point. I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season!
