Night 1 of my wheel throwing pottery class. My back hurts and I have clay literally everywhere, even in my eyebrows, but it was amazing! My first piece went great and I got cocky and it soon died a terrible warped death. My second piece had something against me and there was no chance. My third piece, the one you see here, was done very very slowly and with lots of love. What an amazing feeling to turn off the wheel and see a very nice bowl sitting there! I was so excited that I missed a step before removing it from the wheel and that's why the bottom looks bad, but for my first class I'm feeling very proud!
Awesome stacking technique to get complex forms on the wheel. @andybissonnettepottery with @repostapp
Putting a jar together part 2. Many years ago Pete Pinnell visited my ceramics class at MSUM and showed us this stacking technique. Still use it often to this day.

Thank you so much 👌🏻👌🏻
I went to the Pottery shed today, just me. No child (that never happens!!) No husband (he doesn't normally come along but my point is that I went out by myself.)
I sat with my own thoughts. Chatted with the other ladies, trimmed my latest little bowl (vid) glazed a few pieces, threw my first mug.
It was so lovely.
I must do it again.
