Pottery Class

To get out of the house, meet new people, and of course to learn something new, a couple of friends and I decided to join a pottery club. I came out with a lot of different pieces, some hand molded, but mostly I worked on the wheel. Out of all the pieces, these are my favorite, not necessarily for what they are, but because of how the glaze turned out. I never put much thought into the glazing. This part of the pottery process was very random and experimental for me. These little bowls were dipped entirely in a clear glaze, and then 'rimmed' in a blue. The blue glaze ran down the inside and out, creating this wonderful, organic look. Now seeing as how I don't usually use dipping bowls in my kitchen, I think I well move these to my crafting space where they will become bead organizing bowls instead. This way, I will get a lot more enjoyment out of them.

  7. those are great! I admit to being a little bit jealous, I haven't had a chance to work with pottery in years.

    I love the glaze though, it definitely has an organic feel to it.

  8. gorgeous!!

    You would be surprised, I have "dipping bowls" in my kitchen and they get quite a lot of use. they are the perfect size for a before bed snack of yogurt as well as for holding little things that are between preparation stages in my kitchen.
