From Beth

I have been home sick this week while my students are in the able hands of guest artist Mark Gardner. They are making a bunch of bowls while I am out. For the end of their 3rd week the assignment was to make 5 objects alike, based on the spindle work, that contain 2 of the techniques they had learned. With only 2 days for them to complete the project I was very happy with the results. I love to see the individual start to show in the work. It is easy to copy work, but unfulfilling in my mind. I believe that as technique is developed so must a personal voice in which to showcase skill. Here is what they made:
