As a photographer in Spokane who normally photographs people in a portrait or wedding setting,It is rare for me to photograph something without a person in it. But thats just what I did for my mom. She began going to clay earlier this year in February and the first thing she brought back was the thing pictured below. I have always known my mom to be artistic but sometimes she always goes above and beyond with some of her work. It makes since since her mother, my grandma, was a school teacher for most of her life at District 81. Growing up as kids we always had a project to work on, some of my brothers were really good at sketches while the others were better at the more physical arts such as sports or welding etc.
The images you see before you are only two of the pieces my mom has made while doing clay. I was actually surprised by how quickly she picked up clay working, and am impressed with how well she handles most other arts. My mom was thinking of possibly making these clay creations for people to purchase, what do you think? If you would like to purchase some work from her you can contact her here: www.dianethompsoncounseling.com
