This is Alanna modeling in the same poses that she did May. I am taking the form and drawing the figure with wax.

I quickly made the small model on the left in front of the model. After the model left I coiled up the large form. I will alter this further in the next session.

I quickly made the small model on the left in front of the model during the first session. After the model left I coiled up the large form. Today I further altered the form to give the twisting gesture to the vase.

While observing Rodolfo I drew with wax to capture to poses of Anger.  I started this with a 2-hour session in Ann's studio on May 9th and completed the wax drawings in my studio on May 12th.

This was the first day that I cleared out our gallery so that Rodolfo could pose right in my studio.  This was very convenient to not have to move the clay pieces and the glazes.  Rodolfo displayed his poses of anger while I use colored glaze as paints to give the color of anger to the vessels.
