This week was the last week of the fall class of pottery. So we were able to pick up all the items we glaze.
What we focused on for our fall class was hand building. The pottery teacher Bill Russell wanted us to be able to have things built and hand building would be the easiest to have items done after 10 weeks. I made some plates, but sherri made a lot of push plates. Where you flatten a piece of clay and you put a texture on top of it, and cut out a square.
One of the fun things Sherri and I are planning on doing for the fall quarter is to make pottery. I think it will be a fun way for us to have fun doing things together.It makes me so excited to know that we can do fun things together. Where we get to build and make fun things together.
So one of the first things we worked on was making a plate. I learned how to make it like 1/4 inch thick, and then use a coil to make a foot for the plate.
Eventually I think we want to make a lot of fun pots for our house. The above picture are all the random things people have made in the other classes.
