The Incredible Melting Moai - that's rich! My advice to you Roots is just just keep playing with clay and push yourself out of your comfort zone (something I need to do more of) Don't be afraid of failure, some of my best project have been spawned from a failed experiment. The journal is such a good idea, mine is one of the few areas in my life that is organized Put pictures of your finished pieces in there along with details such as clay used, glazes used (especially custom blends), tools used to texture, ideas for improvement, unusual techniques you tried. I keep a book of finished projects and another of sketched and annotated ideas for future projects.
Your most important task in class is to cultivate friendships with people who own kilns so you can get things fired after the semester is over and until you buy a kiln of your own Keep hanging out here for inspiration and keep posting pics so we can be inspired too.
