Taking a pottery class for first time, Summer 2013
I have dabbled in clay but without a kiln it’s kinda not the same. This summer I decided to just suck it up and take a pottery class to understand the innerworkings of what it takes to actually make a decent, useable coffee cup.
Here are a few interesting items I have been able to make:
I had to create a slab-built piece with a bottom and at least two sides. Check!
Once it’s been final fired with glaze it should look better… I hope.
This assignment was to make a continuous curve bowl. Well, I made a bowl. Outta 15 pounds of clay, I believe. Wow. That’s gotta count for something.
Stay tuned for the next installment that has the pieces all bisqued, glazed and final fired. I’m so excited! Tomorrow we unload the kiln and I learn what worked and well, what can be recycled. Hunh.
