The Big Dipper





Here is some of the current work of Sheridan student Mary McKenzie. Mary is creating these winter snow scenes by dipping found objects in a white slip and creating a maze of tangles, prickles and underbrush. She has also been experimenting with dipping chicken wire and expanded metal in the slip to create larger pieces. Future direction is to possibly create sconces outta slip dipped expanded metal. In this way she also creates a piece of art as the pedestal for the piece of art. I look forward to her progress as her enthusiasm for the process is contagious.
