Pottery

Yesterday I went with my sister and niece to a Pottery class.

I had no real idea of what I wanted to make! (Not surprising, as these days I never seem to know what I want)

My sister made a Bonsai Pot for her little tree, and a Pottery Wheel bowl. My niece made a Horses Head - very good- , and a Pottery pot.

And I made a handmade bowl, by rolling out the base, then coil potting, to make the sides, and a Pottery Wheel bowl, which turned out much neater. (I have enclosed a photo)

Although I got quite tired, I found it quite therapeutic and very good for my coordination !

I may go again, I'll see!

Hi Debs

It was clearly a great experience and your bowl is very good especially if this was your 1st go at a pottery class. Maybe you have found yourself a new interest. Can it be glazed and then display it and use it with pride.

Best wishes

Thanks everyone. I have left the bowls to be glazed and then put in the kiln!

I only get to collect it sometime next month!

Thanks

Wow that looks fantastic Nutkin, I bet you were tired too as the coordination for pottery must be full on. I get completely brain fatigued by the end of the week at work (I'm a carpenter) and I'm sure pottery uses the same brain power. Must give it a go.

Yes, do. It was fun, but the brain power is a bit hectic, even though I really tried to take things slowly!

Thanks so much for the compliment!

Now that's impressive! I can't ever imagine managing to achieve that especially first time! I'd be so proud of myself if I created that! Def go back!

Hi Debs

Last time I used a potters wheel I made...... A MESS!! It when absolutely everywhere. They won't let play no more :-( ;-)

I think all creativity is good therapy. Frustrating at time maybe but good.

Your pot by the way looks amazing. I like green tones.

Well done!!!!

I don't know why, couldn't see the pic before but hey that is smashing. I used to go regularly yo a pottery painting cafe and paint plates, jugs, etc,,did a lovely cake stand too...then she shut up shop. Shame as like you, though bizarrely tiring I found it v therapeutic.
