Luminary: a body that gives light, especially one of the celestial bodies (Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary)

Our ceramic luminaries will be box forms that enclose a candle, have a lid, and let out light through a series of pierced decorations.

Tie the visual theme of your luminary to a dream ...which could have occurred during sleep, or may be a wish or want while awake.

For example: a dream about flying over a city could be represented in your imagery, or you may wish to show what you wish to become after college!

Create a challenging geometric form with your slabs. Make a paper template before beginning. Control dry slabs to leather hard, bevel edges and slip and score well!

Use piercing in a thoughtful and meaningful manner: piercing should enhance and fit with the overall theme.

Use a color scheme with surface decoration that is well chosen and well applied.
