Hooray, I haven’t forgotten everything I had learned in Ceramics. The first thing I threw was a cylinder about a foot tall, and when I cut it open my walls were nice and even and I had not left much at the base. If you don’t know anything about throwing ceramics…that is a yay me. I am enjoying my contemporary art class in spite of the author of the book. It does help to have an enthusiastic teacher. I don’t have anything back from the bisque kiln yet, and certainly don’t have anything with glaze. Once I’m done with them, assuming they survive the glazing and I actually like them, I will share photos.
I am hoping to make a bunch of yarn bowls after I’ve gotten more confident with throwing. There is a wool and yarn shop in the town where my university is and I am going to see if they would like yarn bowls. I am also making bookends for my kids rooms since I am fixing those up. I truly love throwing ceramics and would go to class daily if I could.
