Tuesday: Bowls, Bottles and Vases

Was busy at the wheel again today. It would seem as though that's the only class i'm taking but it's not. I'm just enjoying the awakening to something that I really seem to have a natural affinity for. Did three bowls, a bottle that I'm happy with and two vases. went back after the textured vase; this time a little bigger.

Thursday's Offering

Thursday saw the genesis of four more pieces on the wheel. One bowl and a vase, each textured an a bottle that may never see the light of day since i'm not too happy with it.
The third piece, a round-bellied vase seen below was an experiment with texture using sodium silicate mixed with terra cotta slip. This is a keeper, since it was my forst time and it is a technique that I will definitely be trying again. Thank you to Hsin Chuen Lin and Ceramics Daily for the inspiration and instruction.

More Wheel, More Wheel!

Spent the entire day on campus in the ceramics room. Wanted to get more practice in. Six pieces later, I am seeing the development and growth and finding a new love.

Work on the wheel

Here's some of the pieces I made so far on the wheel. It's a challenge! but I'm going to get there. I find that I enjoy the experience even when I have to mash up the pot that i'm working on or it kills itself.
