Here are the first of the fruits of my labour in pottery class. All these items were hand built. Hopefully my first things from the wheel will be done soon.
I find glazing to be the scariest part of the pottery sequence. Even though there are samples, you never really know what your final product will come out like. I used what was supposed to be a dark blue for the rim and middle pattern on the ring holder but over the white it came out more brown. I still like it though but its a bit nerve-racking hoping your final product will come out like you envisioned it.
I love how my little salt cellar turned out! As it was near Easter we learnt how to make a hollow "egg" but I knew we weren't going to be getting them till many weeks after the holiday so I turned my egg into a salt cellar and made a little matching spoon. The glazing turned out to be a bit splotchy but I think it's adds to the charm.
I added one of my wee marigolds for editorial purposes here. I actually made a set of two, the other one being much smaller, and am going to get some small cacti to plant in them. In the excitement of making my first pots I forgot to add a drainage hole... oops!
