A Few of My Favorite Things From 2017-18

Last school year I fell behind on photographing student ceramics work. Here are but a few of the good creations that came out of the studio during that time.

Jenna graduated last year, but not before creating some lovely work that I haven't gotten around to posting until now.

September 20th, 2018 - Open House

Thanks to all who came - it was great to meet you! For those of you with students in ceramics, below is one of the pieces that came out (the one that survived unbroken). The photos of the 5th and 6th period photography class peoples were taken on photo paper with 4-5 second exposures, and still were very much underexposed and then overdeveloped, resulting in low contrast and some issues with developing as I left the prints to rot in the bath on their own for extended periods. Next year maybe I'll try blinding flash for better exposure and more depth of field.

This was raku-fired, and left for a looongish time in the smoke, resulting in the glaze going almost completely coppery.

5th period photo

5th period. If I'd used film to take these images, 1) the exposures and tones would be better, 2) everybody would be in focus, and with an 8"x10" negative, 3) you would be able to see every detail on the tacks in the back wall holding the photos up, and every fiber of the board they're stuck into - but you would have missed my awkward fail at developing the wrong/unexposed sheet of photo paper.

2018 Washington State High School Photography Competition

While Saturday May 5th was a sunny day that ended in a beautiful sunset and rainbows, a group of hard-working volunteers spent much of it in the Inglemoor gym, once again helping three judges look through a body of around 3900 photos to pick the winners in eleven categories. Below are the Inglemoor student photos that earned recognition, along with some others for good measure. To see the works from other schools and get a better sense of the contest, visit wshspc.com.
