mixed media!

so, the great thing about art school is that, even though you major in something, you have the wonderful freedom to take classes in something completely different from what you may be doing for the rest of your life. this semester im taking ceramics and printmaking.. and i've been in the ceramics studio quite a bit in the past week and so far this is what i've done:

we had to pick something out of nature and simplify it into basic shapes, and of course i chose a squid. so the first one is representing their internal beak where the tear apart meat and flesh for food and the second is representing their gills and where they suck in water. i guess itd be considered their nasal passages in a way. so yeah, these are done being shaped and we're going to glaze them, fire them, etc. so i'll post updates i assume
