Day 1 I made three pots! Having never thrown before these pots counted as my 31, 32 and 33 pots.
I tried to take photographs during the process but failed as my hands were covered in clay. I also did not find a way of linking all elements of social media and website integration hence the 5 day delay.
I am here now though and here is my first pot!
My first pot
Day 1: Here is the pot of the day. I might show you the others later but for this post I am just showing you the chosen pots.
My preference is hand building and sculpture. I teach and at Kenley Arts we run courses on hand building and throwing. I focus on hand building so this really is a challenge for me. My father has been trying to get me to throw for years. I think he gave up when I reached my mid teens so this really is going to test my sanity and his patience. Having taught, and been a consultant in education, trying to teach me anything is not easy.
Me working on the first pot
I got a friend to take this on the first day. It is the pointy finger technique. As I go through the days you will also see I have a throwing face. Not attractive but I am going to own it with pride.
