Unveiling of the Pottery!

Friday night I went to the pottery studio to pick up my very first completed pieces. This means I built them out of clay, let them completely dry (which takes a while), fired them once in the kiln, glazed them, and fired them again. Pottery doesn't happen overnight, folks! Think about that the next time you complain about paying $30 for a lovely piece of pottery. Anyway, the blue piece is the ONLY thing I was able to make on the wheel. I don't know how I managed to make it and I have no idea what it is. The white vase I made by hand, which is obvious by the asymmetry. The rest of the weekend I have been packing my butt off. I am now officially stuck eating frozen meals, sandwiches or takeout, as all of my plates, pots, and pans are packed away...ugh!

Nice job! The one on the right looks perfect from where I sit. If you can skin a deer next, you would be a true mountain woman. :)

Miss you!
