My first pottery!

Some of you have asked me – or are probably wondering and afraid to ask me – what do I do with my time? Sometimes I wonder myself, but in a nutshell I surf the internet…a lot…., clean house, raise chickens, workout, study Dutch, and recently, take pottery classes! Not only does pottery require patience, skill and a little humor, it can be extremely time-consuming. I’ve spent a lot of hours in the studio this past week and 4 hours go by like you wouldn’t believe! Anyway, I was there yesterday to trim some pieces, and out from the kiln came my very FIRST piece! After throwing, trimming, [first] firing, and glazing (and not breaking it along the way..) it’s complete! I couldn’t be happier.

Do I sense a career move in the future?

Yummm Mickey Mouse cup goes well with milk! :)

I’m intrigued: pottery requires humor?

Comment by Nico

For when things go awry, like pots flying off the wheel or trimming too much and gouging the piece. It’s more fun when you have the right attitude. Or the need to improvise when something chips.. If you have a sense of humor, I think it helps promote creativity. Instead of throwing in the towel, I think of ways to fix it – or make it better than I ever imagined. We find ourselves chatting and laughing a lot during open studio time.
