I'm currently in high school and I'm taking a ceramics class. I think that it's quite relaxing and fun. Our next project is to sculpt a gargoyle. So far I've done a few pots and a tile. Very Happy

What are your experiences with ceramcs/pottery?

In my elective at uni, I attempted to create a pot / bowl with a dragon wrapped around it using the tail as a handle. I understand what you mean about finding it relaxing, running your fingers over the clay, moulding your masterpiece with your hands.

I say masterpiece, a more accurate description would be disaster-piece. I seem to remember being told to stop smoothing it constantly and it ended up a rather deformed creature whereas the guy next to me was creating an exact replica of Salivador Dali's figure with the drawers even down to carving the delicate fingers. Ah well...Let us know how your gargoyle sculpture turns out. Are you going to be watching films like dracula for inspiration?
