Pottery Pictures and a Pottery Giveaway!!!

I just wanted to show you some of the things I’ve made in my pottery class so far. I am still LOVING this class! I’ve had 4 of 6 classes so far, and I am dreading the end of that 6th week. I will definitely go through clay withdrawals. Seriously. I am in love with the stuff! I love the way it feels on my hands. I love the way it changes shape on the wheel. I love the way it smells. Okay, stop looking at me like that (yes, I can see you). I know how weird that sounds, but I can’t help it. I have been told by one of the instructors and others in the class with me that I seem to have a “knack” for wheel-throwing. If you have ever wanted to take pottery classes, I highly recommend going here and signing up for the next available classes!

Now, if you love hand-made pottery, but would rather just own it rather than make it, head over to Rachel’s blog. She is having a giveaway for some gorgeous pottery, created by Tena Payne, who is teaching the class I’m taking. I’ve blogged about her before.

Now, without further ado, some of the pictures of my work. Remember I’ve only had 4 classes at this point, so be kind in your opinion. Honest, but kind.

This is the clay after being wedged, thrown, centered, and opened. See how wet it is?

These are my very first 2 pieces. I made the cup first, and then the bowl. To be honest, I had to chunk the first 3 attempts, but that’s part of the learning process.

I made these my second week. The larger one is one of my favorite pieces so far. You’ll notice the bottoms look rough. That’s because they had not been trimmed yet.

This is my other favorite piece. It’s supposed to eventually be a teapot, but I like it like this so much that I might just use it as a vase.

Another angle of my teapot/vase.

This past week we learned how to trim the pieces. I don’t have those pictures ready yet, but I’ll get them up soon. We will be glazing the pieces in the next couple of weeks. I can’t wait! Don’t forget to sign up for the pottery giveaway on Rachel’s blog!

  1. Wow!! That’s really impressive!! I think you have the talent for that!!I love it and can’t wait to see your finished work!

  2. Sounds like a LOT of fun! And everything you’ve made looks really great!

  3. Hi! I came to visit you from AL Bloggers. Your pottery looks great. I want to learn how to make the pottery, but I don’t like my hands to feel all oohy-gooey, so I’m not sure how to get past that. Congrats on Conquering the Caption. I try every week to think of something witty and original and never do.
