Beginnings of the thesis

            My thesis started out very differently than it ended up. The original idea was to make ceramic fountains, and somehow incorporate dragons. The first fountain I made as a test looked like this:

             No, no dragons there. The reason it’s sitting in that sad bucket is that the clay basin that was supposed to be there exploded in the bisque. I attempted to dry it too quickly, and apparently I didn’t succeed at getting it all the way dry. Since this fountain was just a test of concept anyway, I didn’t make another one.
