Visiting artist, James Pastore from GoggleWorks gave a talk and demonstration about his work and other ceramic artists. He also worked with my Sculpture students to glaze their work for a gas kiln firing at GoggleWorks.
This ongoing collaboration was also meant to expose students to other firing processes other than an electric kiln + the wealth of information James brought to the demonstration.
The end of fall semester we had Smooth-On back for another demonstration with a number of their products.
From making rubber molds to casting urethane plastics and foams, made for an interesting break.
During his demo, Greg spoke about being on SYFY channel’s FaceOff as contestant.

This isn’t a certain semester or single class of Sculpture I. It shows them in the thick of the wood project; staying safe and getting things done!
Shouldn’t that sword be bigger?
