YAY! It’s HERE! The Friesen Friday project you’ve been waiting for! I think every week I tell you that this week’s project is my favorite, so I will definitely refrain from saying that again … but … this was so much fun!!! I LOVED IT! I could make lots of these and then make lots more. So without any further yakity-yak … let’s get started!
If you have not gotten your PDF copy of Christi Friesen’s “Birds of a Feather” book, please order the book here.
A Note About Voice
By this time, we are 7 months and approximately 24 projects into the total 40 projects in the 2013 Friesen Project. I hope that by this time you are working toward distinguishing yourself from Christi. If we can not do our own versions of Christi’s art, then we can never learn how we work with clay or how we can achieve our own unique style. Therefore, as my projects are starting to differentiate from Christi’s tutorial and what is presented in the book, I hope that your projects can be based in Christi’s style while allowing your own voice to shine through. Finding your “voice” is about finding what defines you as an artist.
