This week I have finished sculpting the World Cup sculpture. Next wee I will have to fire the peice and then glaze and paint it. In the end I believe the form is pretty close to what I wanted. I really impressed myself with my skill with working with clay and I'm very pleased. After the glaze and paint goes on I believe the peice will look great and I am very excited to see it.

This week in class, I have made significant progress on the minute details for my sculpture. I'm in the process of carving the nations of the world on the top "globe" part of the structure. Also I have made the bricks on the bottom or base of the sculpture. The piece is really begining to come together and I can already vision the finished piece. I can't wait to finish the details and glaze the final piece.

This week I have gotten very far with my World Cup sculpture. I'm beginning to feel very comfortable with clay and understand how to manipulate it the way I want. The piece is really starting to resemble the real trophy and I'm very pleased. I've just added the two overhanging ledges on the left and right also. Next week I should be pretty close to finishing and being ready to paint and fire it.

Progress: World Cup Sculpture
This week I've made great progress on my World Cup sculpture. I feel like things are begining to take the shape of what I have in my mind. Also I've gotten a lot more comfortable with working with clay than I was when I started this project. I'm very excited to see my finished peice but that's still a ways away. For now I'm still working on somewhat replicating the basic form of the actual trophy.

World Cup Sculpture
This week I've started my World Cup sculpture. Even from the first couple of days I can tell that it's going to be harder than I thought. At the same time I can't wait to get into it and really challenge myself. I've never really done much sculpture before so it'll be interesting to see how it goes. In the end I hope that it at least looks somewhat like my goal.

This week I have been working on more of the plans for the mythological creature house. It's beginning to seem a little more difficult than I expected. Understanding how everything will fit together is a real challenge. I just need to continue putting it all together piece by piece. I believe that I am capable of this but if will just take some time.

This week I've begun the floor plans for the mythology house project. My experience from the last project is really turning out to help me. I'm finding that I know terms and measurements but also I can understand what I am drawing will be like once created. Next I will move onto the wall plans and this will most likely be the most difficult part of the whole project. I believe this project will turn out very nicely.
