Exploring My Creative Side
My friend Gayle talked me into taking a pottery class. Now for those of you that know me (and as I am sure JM would tell you) I have issues with manual tasks and fine motor skills. So it was quite amusing to try to use a pottery wheel. Every class I ended up covered with clay from head to toe and somehow ended up getting my finger caught in the piece I was throwing - completely ruining it. I definitely enjoyed the opportunity to hang out with my friend Gayle, but the class helped to confirm that I do not have any hidden talents as a potter. Gayle, however, is a natural and will be taking the class again. I have attached a copy of some of the pieces I made for your amusement.
