I am in last year of college.

I been in my college for four years. One year access and three years doing ceramics and jewellery. We have three weeks left before we hand in our last pieces of work. I’m on track but it’s scary. It’ll be ok if nothing goes wrong. Like a piece going in the kiln comes out as one piece! Or like today I enamelled a brooch I was making and when I had soldered the hooks on the back the flux had run and the enamel wouldn’t stick to it! Help!
congrats!!!!!!! i've seen students do really well in arts classes even with kiln firing issues. you have a very limited control for how things will go in there. try to enjoy it some. 🤓 and good luck!! ✨

Thank you. You made me smile because I have realised now I am not in complete control. I am working with elements of the Earth, metals, acids, clays and they have a mind of their own. I must work alongside them. And then we may produce something of great beauty. When I typed great it came out Greta. Have you heard of Greta Thunberg? If only people would listen to her!
