I’ve been taking Wednesday night pottery class at The Potter’s Studio (http://www.berkeleypottersstudio.com) and learning to throw pots (and also plates). Unfortunately the first three (which looked more like ash trays) got recycled because they crossed over a month boundary (when they do cleanups of orphaned work) and looked too dry to trim. Boo.
At any rate, this one is I think #8 of my pots… the second one that I threw on my wheel at home. It reminds me of a mushroom a little bit. It’s currently in the greenware phase, just after trimming. I really hope it makes it through it’s journey to glazing, because it might end up being my new chai mug. We’ll see.
