Dabbling in Pottery
Here are my rather wonky results from this summer's attempts to learn pottery at Chambers Pottery.
Lovely studio. Fascinating people. If you're looking for a pottery studio, I'd highly recommend this one.
I took the Beginner/Intermediate Wheel class where I was introduced to wedging, a little hand building, throwing, finishing and glazing.
I have a whole new level of respect for folks who do pottery. It's slow, meticulous, hard work! And, I must admit, requires more patience than I have... although I suppose I could say my distraction over building my new shop this summer could partially excuse my impatience and rough work.
Still, I really enjoyed dabbling a little in pottery. The bowls and beads I completed this summer are a fun souvenir. But if you really want to see some beautiful work, you should visit the studio and see what the real pottery artists are making!
