Thursday and Friday at work we had a Jordu Schell workshop at VV! Basically, we watched him create something beautiful out of clay for the first day (I'm pretty sure magic was involved) and then the 2nd day we all floundered around and tried to make something of our own. ;) We also got to watch him paint his sculpture. It was incredibly inspirational, and it's crazy how much you can learn just from watching someone work.
Here's what I made. We worked from about 1:30 - 6pm on Friday. He's about 4" high - working like that totally exhausts your eyes (and this is coming from someone that's on the computer all day)!
Maybe I'll work on it a little more before I fire it. I was thinking about giving him a beard. :)
