Pottery Class

This spring I took a pottery class with my mother and sister. While I knit, I’ve never really considered myself crafty or artistic.  Quite the opposite in fact. I thought it would be fun to learn a bit about pottery and a good chance to spend time together.  My sole goal: have my mug not leak.

As it happened, I really enjoyed the class. I don’t think it’s a skill I naturally possess, but it’s fun to see things that I created. I like to think of my style as “authentically rustic”. The lines aren’t even or smooth; my bowls are a bit more oval than round; but I’m very psyched that I made them myself. 🙂
