About This Class

In this class, we'll create a ceramic mask in our own backyard with only your hands, air-dry clay and other household objects.  We'll also cover generating ideas and creating a reusable form.  These masks may not be meant for Halloween, but they are great for unique household decor and gifts!

A fun class to watch. Good techniques for playing in clay without a kiln. (Would be great to see a photo of the piece when it's painted and hung. ) Good class!

I have always been interested in the visual arts from an early age- drawing, painting, and clay- but around my high school years I became interested in photography for the social aspect of involving other people, the adventure inherent in seeking out pictures, and the presentation of reality that wasn't limited by my drawing skills.  

One thing in my work that has stayed consistent over the decades since then is I have an equal interest in the reality of the lens next to the fictions we can create in drawing, painting, animation, graphic design, and sound design.  As cameras have incorporated video and audio features, and as Adobe's Creative Cloud allows for use of a plethora of mind-bending tools, I now make video art pieces that are based in photography but utilize time lapse, clay and paper stop motion animation, graphic animation, text and sound to expand the same intersection of reality and pop surrealism.
