I have joined a pottery class! I took a class on wheel-thrown pottery some years ago, and learned just enough to know that I have a LOT to learn about this, and to know that I really enjoy it.
That first time around I made a series of lopsided pots that are serving time now as holders for my cactus plants.
This blue-green trio usually sits on my kitchen window sill and adds some crooked cheer to that space.
We learned to make all kinds of pots, using one color of clay and two.
My pots are really thick-walled and quite small. I really like playing with clay though, and have been wanting to get better at it.
So since then I've been looking for a chance to take another class, and finally the stars aligned this semester to allow this chance. I have been making pinch pots and pieces using coils and slabs. None of the pieces is finished yet though.
I will get on the wheel next week and see if I remember anything. Only time will tell if I will end up with more crooked pots for my cacti or if the pieces will find other purposes in life. In the meantime I am having lots of fun with this, and keeping really busy.
Hope all is well with you!
