What do you think?

I finally found out today that the things I needed for this year's classes were cut from the budget. So once again I must teach a ceramics one class without a budget for clay, tools, glazes, or even a kiln. So this year I have been pushing the students to pay their lab fees, and have collected enough for a ton of clay, and half the glazes I need. I still have about 50 who still need to pay. Today I started asking the teachers and staff if they would be willing to donate $25 each for a kiln, and I will make a bunch of cups, bowls, vases, etc., and they can choose one at the end of the school year. Any other thoughts or ideas? Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. :-)

My kingdom for a kiln!

The shelves at the CCVP are getting bare, and I have another 40 pieces or so - but they need their final firing. :-(
What I wouldn't give right now to own my own kiln!

Ceramic Celebration V Plus - Opening Night

The show started with a bang!  The first hour showed at least 6 of my pieces sold, and an equal number of the college ceramics professor's work.  I had a lot of interest in my painting, but no takers ... at least tonight.
I took lots of pics, so here they are!

Here's some of the professor's interesting works:

Hope you enjoy the show!
