Entered Information
Student Name: Elisabeth P
Grade: 8
Title: Zena
Description: This piece was a huge struggle for the artist, as she tried to capture the appearance and personality of this animal. Once she participated in a raku firing, she wanted to raku this piece. We had trouble getting the kiln temp up, as we fired during one of the recent warm days, because the air around cooled more quickly than predicted. The appearance is not as we planned, but she likes it better this way.
