Some of you have already noticed that you are getting emails from my students. I apologize about not announcing it last week, but it just plainly slipped my mind. I gave the students the same list I used last semester, with a couple of names crossed out as "unavailable" for reasons I won't go into.
I really appreciate that you take time from your hectic and busy schedules to answer the questions of my students. It makes them really excited when they come in with a reply from one of you.
This semester, I told them they had 40 artists to choose from, so I didn't want any duplicates in the class. You should have heard some of them today, as I read off the names that were already taken. It's a good thing that some of you make pottery in similar styles! I was able to give them alternate names that do similar work. I will keep you posted on how they are doing with their reports, and what they are having to say about your work.
Enjoy your weekend!
