Green Dog Pottery Update

After 4 weeks of pottery lessons, we picked up our first stash of completed, fired pieces after last week's glazing session. It's amazing how different pieces look after you glaze them - they look like real pottery now! Most of the cups and bowls we made were a little small to be functional mugs and dishware, but they did look great when arranged on a display shelf in the dining room.

A few were just the right size and made it into the cupboard.

We're going to continue with another month's lessons, and hopefully learn how to make some handles for our mugs, as well as some larger forms. I'm really enjoying the hands on, 3-d aspect of throwing, and I love that you end up with dozens of little pieces to use or display around the house.
