the pottery wheel

My mom treated to me a mini pottery class where we learned how to make a pot in in a whopping 60 minutes.  I totally ruined my first one (how do you remember all the steps in one sitting??)  And I didn't realize the strength required for shaping clay.  Wow.  I think that's how my first one died... but I'm proud of my second pot.  I can't wait to see it after the kiln.

Again-- so proud.  And no I did not do the detailing around the rim.  That's far too out of my league.  I let the teacher "finish it off" for me.  Now I got to decide what color to glaze  Thanks Mom!
