A Good Gesture

First project in my wheel throwing class: construct a building out of clay. This is a church from Brazil. It is hard to eliminate your style from anything you do and so this building swoops and leans. Luckly for me it looks alive and not sloppy.

Meanwhile, I received this in the mail a few weeks ago, a belated birthday gift from Andy, purchased while he was on tour this summer. The artist is Scott Young. It is painted and cut out masonite. Someday we will have live chickens.
