I'm so excited to show you my first two projects from my pottery class. The little cherry bowl is the very first thing I made. There's kind of a thin spot on one side, but for the most part I'm so thrilled with the way it turned out. I used a simple clear glaze, so you can see all the sand in the clay. I think I'm a huge fan of the clear glaze.
Next I made this little vase. It may eventually become a pencil cup; but for now it's holding some fresh freesia that smells so good. I have one more piece waiting to be fired this week and three more close behind. I had an accident with another of the pieces last night as I dipped it in the glaze...my tongs punctured a hole right through the side. Oops. Now I have to figure out what to do with a tiny bowl with a hole in the side. Any ideas?
Anyhow, if you've got a pottery class near you and a wonderful, willing babysitter I highly recommend it. Hope you have a fantastic weekend. I'm so glad the sun decided to join us again for a few days!
