The Ladies







There has been some talk of macho he man wood firers scratching their private parts and running women off the premises. What a bunch of truck and silly nonsense. With pleasure I'm presenting 5 of the ladies I taught at Sheridan College. There are many more men and women from Sheridan I'd gladly show y'all. They all had a go at wood firing and went their separate and diverse directions. I am very proud of their work. As far as I am concerned I recommend wood firing on several levels from historical to team building to the understanding of combustion. Sheridan is a 3 year diploma program where the faculty take pride in students leaving with top notch applied skills so that they start a studio or enter a Bfa or Mfa program.

Excellent work, more of the usual high standard from Sheridan folks have come to expect. I take note of how well put together the forms are, boxes are seamless and smooth. The vace with lattice is a form Bruce or Walter would be proud of. Proof of good students and excellent teachers
