    Rosa, I was just coming here this morning to ask for photos and here I see that you’ve posted them. Great job. I took a ceramics class in college and the wheel is a tricky thing to master.


    Flowerseverywhere I completely agree that the meditative nature of doing work with our hands helps our mental health.

    Yes you would know. I often imagine you dividing your iris and how lovely your gardens must look. Plus the fresh air and satisfaction of creating beautiful things

    Continuing to practice developing competence in the basics. I wouldn't say I've got anything totally down yet, but things are feeling a bit less impossible. In hindsight, spring wasn't the best time to start this since we have so many other things going on, and ideally, I wish we could find more time to go in and practice. I'm sure it will work out fine though, and progress with just be a bit slower.

    Is that a tray you're working on? It looks promising.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    Jane: What you are seeing there is the wheel itself; my hands are concealing the blob of clay I was about to start working on. I think after this beginner's class I will just have some quirky little pots and bowls to show for it. We don't do the glazing until the last class (end of June), so I don't think I'll have any finished products until a week or two into July.

    Some works in progress that I believe show that I am actually making some progress:

    Definitely progress, rr!! They look really nice! Like the two-handled bowl.
