Pottery is therapy!
Wheel throwing, hand building, trimming, carving, sanding and glazing force me to be in the moment. This summer, due to Covid-19, one of my Ceramics teachers offered a limited-spot, mask-wearing class. One of the wonderful things about learning from and working with Peter Syak is ending class with an always-dramatic Raku firing. My favorites pieces from the class are a desk caddy and lamp bases (my first ever lamps!). We used an Extruder, which is like a giant Play-Doh tool, to make unique bowls. I carved them and added feet, but won’t know they turn out until I Raku fire them this Fall.

WOW,. Naomi! I’m enjoying learning more about you! I use to paint ceramics…a LOT, many years ago. Stopped maybe 30 years ago. The only time I tried the wheel was when I “tried” art school. I could NOT master it! I’m so impressed by this 😀 VERY cool ❤
Thanks, Donna! I’ve been taking classes for many years and have much, much more to learn.
