Another Year... Another Project

     Again this year, one of the projects that I will be assigning the students is a ceramic artist research paper.  It is a chance for them to see the works of many different potters, with many different styles and types of clay works – from different parts of the world.  They have to download 2 pictures of the artists’ work, and email the artist to ask a number of questions about their work, such as: what influenced their style, the medium they work in, the glazes they used on a particular piece, etc.  They only need to write 750 words, but I’m hoping they will end up with much more. 
     May I have your permission to steer them to your blog and website to obtain information, and to contact you by email?  I would appreciate it immensely, and you would be able to influence this new generation of students in their search for new outlets in the world of art.   Please pass this on to other potters who may be interested in helping.
Thanks in advance for reading this post, and for your quick replies. 
Happy Mudding!
