The woman who taught the class makes amazing birdhouses that she sells at a local gallery. We had seen them before and were thrilled to be learning something new.
The girls listened intently, the instructions seemed to go on forever. All we really wanted to do is get our hands on some clay. And once that happened........
We got serious! It was fun to just let the clay do it's thing, which was the instructor's advice. As she said, "Listen to the clay." Here is our creation once glazed and pre-fire.
The proud artist, who was less than pleased that we couldn't take it home immediately. Pottery is a nice lesson in patience.
