First Pottery Class

For those of you who were just dying to see my pottery, I give you my first masterpieces. I know what you're thinking, they are beyond words. I'll learn how to glaze tomorrow night, so all these pieces you see will be even more beautiful and you all will be rendered speechless.

Let's see let's call these spittoon 1, spittoon 2, and not quite a vase.

And this one I almost spun off into my neighbors wheel, but I saved it and then pinched the top to make it look like a pitcher instead of the mistake, uh, I mean, I meant to do that, it was my plan all along, it's art you know, it doesn't have to be perfect, uh, I mean, it's perfect.
Look at those things in the background. I think I'm doing okay. And no, I'm not going to admit that a child made those, lets just pretend that everything you see is made by adults.
So here is my pitcher and spittoon 3. And to the mom who gets to display the ashtray with finger holes and ashtray blob there in the background, God bless you.

Oh, by the way, Mom, Rechelle, Dad, Clay and other unsuspecting relatives reading this blog.... Merry Christmas!

Not bad April, not bad. I assume from the recurring theme that you have a lot of tabacco chewers in the family, or perhaps someone with a drooling problem? ;-)
Just kidding, they look great. I tried throwing clay once, and believe me I learned why they call it "Throwing" clay. I got so frustrated I just wanted to throw it on the flor and cus at it.

Your sister is still looking for an urn. Could you give her one or two of these and say they shrunk after you fired them? (Sorry. I'm just kidding.)

Actually, I like number three and the pitcher. I can't wait to see what you do next!
