Our last pottery class is April 4th.
This little bowl came out perfectly. I love the detail near the base.
We made some random free hand dishes by rolling the clay and imprinting it for texture. The color did not come out as anticipated.
We have learned a lot, such as not dropping your pieces in the glaze like I did with this one! It messed it all up! I left it this way for the kiln since I thought it would be interesting....which it is!
The screw up created some neat texture!
I'm looking forward to the next class. My plate should be complete. It is totally even....shocker! I also have a bowl/plate (not sure which to call it) coming out of the kiln which hopefully looks cool glazed.
I have 2 more pieces to prep for their first firing too. One is a vase which is not that great, however I'm hoping to tool it in a way that it will be useful! My intention was to create an in between sized vase. I have a large crystal one perfect for the beautiful bouquets Jim gives me. A week later though some of the flowers have passed their prime and I need a smaller vase to transer the healthy flowers to so I can continue to enjoy the bouquet. The only other vase I have is a bud vase. Keeping my fingers crossed!
I love this stone which is natural fossil stone. It is a wonderful earthy tone! Available at Miss Val's Creations.
