At The Wheel (this time potters, not spinners)

This summer I've been taking a community ed. class in pottery. I've always loved pottery (another in a long list of things my mother influenced) and the community ed. center is only two blocks away from the house so it is very convenient. Hubs has been taking a wood working class there as well and has been creating up a storm (it's in his blood however, his great-great grandfather was a famous New York furniture maker!) So without further adieu, here are some of my first pieces:

Slab bowl, very organic in nature (large enough to hold about 8 good sized peaches!)

Twice Dipped Bowl (first thrown piece on the wheel, had instructor help)

The Coco Vessel

Zoe - your pottery really makes me want to find a class as well.

How cool. You know, one day I really want to visit NC!
