Wading Into Ceramics



Two of the greatest artists in America have inspired me to try and wade into the world of ceramics. Their names would be Susan Rose and Gennine Zlatkis. This has been no easy journey for me. Working in clay is hard to do. I'm not into working on the wheel nor do I have the chops. Hand building is my thing. My first weeks, which were many, were filled with hundreds of mistakes and mishaps. My works fell apart, things exploded, I fired stuff when I should have painted on it first, I put on one coat of underglaze when I should have put 3 and on and on. The teachers seemed to look upon me in despair. Plus they were forcing me to work on the wheel until one teacher saw some of my drawings and told me NOT to go near the wheel anymore. That was a big turning point. Many times I wanted to quit but the thought of Sue and Gennine being disappointed kept me going. This sort of explains how crazy I am because Sue and Gennine had no idea I was taking a ceramics class. The images I am showing here are really not very good but they are my first few experiments. They are filled with mistakes and things I hate BUT I learned big lessons by doing them. Soon I will make very groovy pieces of art in ceramic form. Give me some time.
Also if you want to see me post my ceramics as I'm doing them, then follow me on my Instagram. I give a lot of sneak peeks there.

I ate a Hostess Cream Filled cupcake after my baloney sandwich for lunch my entire grammar school career. However I ate them in one gulp so I definitely could not tell you the taste difference between it's anus and it's drumstick.
Ed Beard

PS My kid is funnier.

Strike Force Heroes 1
For moving in the game you must use the keys Strike Force Heroes 1 or the arrows keys. If you want to jump you can use the keys Up, Space or W. For switching weapon you can use Q or Shift.
Strike Force Heroes 2
is here, much fun. In the second installment of the action-packed shooting game you have to take over your enemy space base at all costs. Move and shoot through several missions and don’t forget to kill all baddies.
Strike Force Heroes 3
It is always going to be a challenge if you are a member of the Strike Force. You will be sent out on challenging missions and that is exactly the situation here. You must eliminate all the enemies using the weapons available to you.
