Playing with Clay

I love having a ceramics teacher for a sister! I mean, I'd love her even if she wasn't a ceramics teacher... but I really love the opportunities I have been getting, as her sister, to play with clay. I find it to be a bit stressful to my perfectionistic personality to try and create something on a spinning wheel, but when something comes together I get immense satisfaction.

I know I have a lot to learn, and these bowls most certainly aren't without flaw, but I love them anyway. I am proud of them even. Most importantly, I had a lot of fun creating them.

Thanks, Art, for giving me opportunities to work on my creativity in a new way! I can't wait for next time!

Fun, fun! I took a class in high school and loved it. Then, when we were on vacation one time, we found a studio and Eli & I did it together. He was way better than me. I wish we had a place around here where he could do it more often.... Great job, btw. Love the bowls :)
