I discovered a new hobby… ceramics! I took a beginner’s class at Merritt Ceramics back in March and it was love at first throw. Since then I haven’t stopped practicing. I attended a “throwing off the hump” workshop, a second beginner’s class, am currently in the intermediate class, and in July I’ll be taking a 5-day course on how to throw big at The Crucible in Oakland. I’m also now a proud owner of the Shimpo VL-Lite potter’s wheel.
There’s still a ton of things to learn about ceramics and I’m excited to soak in as much knowledge as I can so that I can throw more consistently. Just look at the photo on this post and you’ll notice the different sizes. Just FYI, the intention was to make them all identical in height and diameter. I definitely need more practice.
