EDM #19: Draw Something You Made
This little guy has been with me many years. I made him when I was in seventh grade, a long, long, time ago in a far away school (well, it's actually just downtown from here..). He's not really porcelain, but clay with a pure white glaze that makes him look porcelain; and he's solid, really solid.
I needed a project, the deadline was looming, minutes actually. I grabbed a baseball size hunk of wet clay, jammed my thumbs into, smoothed the ridge that formed above each eye, made a small slit for a mouth and turned it in.
Grade? I have no idea, but I'll bet it is one of the very few clay projects than anyone still has from that class...."A" material, doncha think?
