Just would like to show off some students' works from my beginning wheel-throwing class at UNC-Greensboro. What a rewarding teaching experience!!
These young kids are full of energy and creativity. I have tried very hard to equip them with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to transform their creative concept into reality.
For this class, I did encourage them to copy well-made ceramic works; traditional or contemporary. It was the way Chinese artist learned from their master for centuries, and this was the way I examined how well they have learned from this class. 
I also included two interesting works from my previous hand-building class: A Tang dynasty lady playing Guitar Hero and a Japanese Haniwa working on his lap top.

    In fact you are doing a great job teaching!

  3. just beautiful carvings--something I aspire to.
