Clay class

Wheel-thrown pottery

Less than a month later, clay class is over --- I'm so sad to see it go! Six sessions on the wheel was just long enough for me to remember how to create vessels of various shapes and sizes, but not long enough to get the itch out of my system. Here's hoping Mark can get the rusted guts of a kick wheel out by the barn up and running before I go into withdrawal.

Pottery bear

Spotty glazesI did a little hand-building too, but most of those pieces haven't yet been fired. One of my earliest efforts, a little black bear, came out nicely...but is about as hard to photograph as Huckleberry. I'll see if I can't get better shots of my other pieces once they're glazed and done.

Go for it! You seem to have some talent for pottery (unlike me!) I especially like the bear piece.
