Totem Exchange

 I had the pleasure of participating in a totem exchange with 8 other wonderful clay artists!  It entailed making 9 pieces of art with 1/2-inch holes on the top and bottom in order to thread onto a piece of re-bar.  Some of us threw our pieces on the wheel, while others hand-built them.  Sign-up ended March 1st, and we had until the end of May to finish them.  It was a fun and freeing project for me because it didn't matter if they looked the same at all!  Then we had a party in June and exchanged them.  What a great excuse for a party!

Jan's owls--She came up with the project!
