Sources of Inspiration
You need not look far sometimes for inspiration. I have walked past this stone sculpture at the front of the art building for almost 3 years. Now that I am interested in doing tall rock like vessels in clay it is my favourite piece of art on campus. The different views of this piece are inspiring my clay work. Prof. Dan Murphy is my studio mate and I love to watch Dan work. He handles clay so confidently and he has been very encouraging and helpful with what I'm trying to pull off. Here is Dan making a 3 foot long horizontal bourbon bottle. I'd love one of these pots in my collection.
