Your response to my ceramics post was encouraging--I had no idea so many of you had taken classes before or plan to in the future. I took some photos of my shelf and wheel at the studio yesterday so you could see what I've been working on. These are the first pieces I've made that weren't a total disaster, and most of them are from this week. I think I've finally made a breakthrough to point where I'm starting to enjoy it. None of my stuff has been bisque fired or glazed yet, so you're seeing it in an unfinished state. We won't get to that stuff until two weeks from now, so it'll be about a month before I have any finished work. Needless to say, I'm such an amateur and it shows. I haven't had enough experience to find my own style yet, but I look forward to practicing and growing. I do hope that someday I'll look back at these pots and find their exploratory, rough-hewn qualities endearing since they were my first attempt.
