My five week pottery class learning to use the wheel is now over. I plan on taking the 10 week beginner class in the spring, which starts after the wedding. Then I will have the free time to go in outside of class and practice.
I took ceramics my senior year of high school and loved it and again my senior year of college. Those classes were all hand-building projects and I have never before tried to use the wheel. I made a variety of hideous and misshapen items to share with y'all!

Our last project was to handbuild trays to use up the rest of our clay. However, "trays" was a project in my college ceramics class and I have five, I repeat five, useless trays around the house. I might post about them, just you you don't think I am horrible at clay.
Point being, I made coasters instead because I didn't have much clay left. I used a roller to give it a "wood" texture. I thought the glaze combination was going to be different and they ended up looking like tiny Earths. That's cool.
PS, you can see my wedding skirt and a bunch of wedding loot in the background!
