Summer semester ceramics class, the first assignment was to create a souvenir. This is one of the things I made, it is a souvenir from my heart.
I wanted a reference for what a human heart looks like, so I used a postcard I had that shows an illustration of a heart. This may not look quite like a human heart, but it did come out looking quite a bit like the picture on the postcard. I forgot to bring the postcard to class on the second day I was working on it, and I caught myself looking around the classroom looking for I don't know what. I had the vague idea I could use someone's actual heart, but it really isn't ladylike to tear out a classmate's heart. So I just wrapped the project up tight and saved it to work on the next week.
