Spring in the art classroom is Gnome Season at GMS. Eighth grade students are building ceramic gnomes using the double pinch-pot technique, various visual references, and skills learned from their 7th grade ceramic endeavors. As my students work, I usually build the same project on my own as an example of the steps required to complete the piece. Today, I was building my gnome's body and facial features when I noticed something a bit...off-putting. My gnome looks a little like Marty Feldman, the actor from one of my favorite movies -- Young Frankenstein. Can you see the similarities? Thank goodness it is a work in progress....gnome what I'm saying?
