Last pottery class this week, got my raku back, meh. Folks felt such a connection someone suggested we meet again next wk to pick up and glaze our final works outside of class time. I have some stoneware left to glaze. Maybe I'll finally make/get a successful mug with my own hands.
Spent way too long in pottery lab decorating and attaching handles. Went in bright-eyed, left grumpy and tired. They better not be garbage when they come out!
(*rewrite) -3rd pottery class last night. None of my work worth mentioning had been bisqued so I sat out the stoneware glazing to practice on the wheel. Bummer. Going back in to make some handles today.

3rd pottery class last night. To my disappointment none of my greenware had been glazed so I sat out the glazing demonstrations at the wheel practicing cylinders. Going back in to put handles on them today.
Second pottery class tonight. Saw a raku firing done for the first time. Threw another pot, started a hand-built berry bowl and sig stamp. got to show off a couple of my self-made jewelery molds. Glazed my things for raku firing next week. Fun times.

Started a short (1 month only) pottery class last night. Touched a wheel for the first time in 8 years. Given my past experiences I think I was a trooper. Made a pot-thing sort of then ran out of time. Hand built a couple more. It was very mellow. Long drive there/back. To my surprise we'll be given KEYS TO THE STUDIO and can come in and basically do 'lab' work unsupervised any time there isn't another class on. This is a fully equipped college pottery room and I'm delight...
