This is the post where I admit that I can't do everything. I should have spent all the time in my class learning to do at least ONE decent mug, as opposed to thousands of crappy items. I had almost gotten the plate thing down at the end.
Considering how much time I spent obsessed with YouTube videos of pottery throwing this summer, you would think I might have learned at least how to make a decent mug. Maybe not.
This is a decent pitcher, but for the atrocious handle.
I'm afraid that my new brother-in-law will find this cake plate so hideous that he won't let my sister bring it into the house. Hey, when you're glazing, you just dip your precious pot in a bucket and pray for the best. Sort of like finding a boyfriend.
I actually kind of like this cake plate below. When we were carrying all the pieces out of the studio, Jason said "would you cry if I dropped all of these?" I said "If it comes down to your face, or that floweredy cake plate, you better save the plate. The rest I don't care about."
My attempt to be the fabulous Whitney Smith whose work I love but cannot afford.
And what the crap is this? I didn't even think it was worth glazing. Now I don't know what to do with it.
As for the pottery: super super fun, but I'm going to stick with what I do best...now if I can just find the post-it note where I wrote exactly what it is that I do best.
