Clay & Canvas by Connie
Return to C Finchum
"Being a very logical person I went to school
and got Bachelors of Science Degree in Mathematics and in Physics. Then I
taught math for nine years and decided I liked math more than having the
summers off and became a software engineer in the the
aerospace industry. I developed software for air defense and air
traffic control systems. I also got a Master of Science in Computer
"I occasionally explored art: drawing, painting,
porcelain doll making and ceramics.
I found I enjoy working with
clay -- I never thought I would love to play in the mud!
"Now most of my time is spent with
clay. The field of ceramics is so broad that I have barely touched
the surface. Being a novice is exciting, at times frustrating, but
"I worked in a ceramic studio with four
other women, we called ourselves the Mad Mudders and took our
'show' on the road. We had a 20 foot booth at the Prescott Fine Art
& Wine Festival in May for several years and also at the Prescott
Summer Fine Art & Crafts Show in August for several years.
"I am still
experimenting with different glazes and clay bodies. I will be back at
Yavaipai College for classes.
"I am currently active volunteering
and working at the gallery at Mountain Artists Guild."
