As part of my graphic design major I'm required to take a bunch of studio art classes — which I love. Right now I'm taking ceramics, and it's rocking my world. I'm obsessed.

But it does feel good to be making work that I can give to friends as gifts and see them put to good use. I just recently got my first bunch of work glazed and complete, and it started a fire in me to make and make and make.
Here are some images of ceramic work that's inspiring me:
