Another class for me!

Throwing ClayImage by darkfoxprime via Flickr
I went to my first class today at the pottery studio.  I hope to learn how to throw on a wheel.  I have done handbuilding in the past and enjoyed it, but I always wanted to know how to work with clay on a potter's wheel. I am learning.

My first experience was fun, kinda like playing in mud and making mudpies.  I really made a mess and ended up with clay all over me and my clothing.  I seem to be okay at centering the clay and getting it off the wheel, but I haven't a clue how to pull it, so in effect, I don't know what I'm doing. 

But, I did have fun!  Next week I will try all over again to make a simple cylinder.  Hopefully, I will eventurally get it. 

No pictures today of anything.  I was way too messy to get my hands on a camera.  But maybe after I learn what I am doing, I will have something to show you.
