This is so exciting, my own domain! I feel more like a real person now with my own domain than I did when I graduated college, ha.

The pottery class I’ve been taking through the community is really great! Here’s a peek at what I’ve been making.
Bowls dipped in high-fire glaze
An asymmetrical bowl I salvaged from the junk pile and hand painted with 2 glazes, that when fired, interact with each other to give it its unique look
Square plate with lace overlay, next time I will hand paint instead of dipping- lost too much of the textureThe original lace overlay experiment, now kind of like a dish
Throwing on the wheel is harder than it looks. Weirdly, it takes strong fingers to be able to create an even opening and sides of the same thickness. I might stick to making plates because those I can make of out slabs of clay, which we have a machine to do for me.
I am also in the middle of a lamp renovation, photos will be shared when I finish!
