Pottery Class

So here is our summer pottery class post. I decided instead of posting a listing for each class, it would be easier to just post one.

Our first class was on June 4th. It was an 8 week course every Tuesday night, and it was such a great time.

The class was at the Scera Art Studio. Here is the room:


Karl and I sat right next to each other the whole time. It was really fun.

The first day, we got a huge bag of clay, and learned to center our clay. We even made the starts of mug.


My first ever mug…I was really proud, can you tell?

Karl’s mug is right there, and we learned that first day we would get pretty messy every time.

We had the top shelf, and I made Karl get our stuff down every time.

Weeks went by, as the summer did. And taking pictures was really hard, since my hands were always covered in mud and dust.

I made lots of different pieces, and the culmination of the class was my tea pot! I had to make the pot, then the spout, then the handle. Then get them all attached. I also made my own little vase for tiny flowers.

On the last day of class, we did our glazing. And these are FANCY glazes, the will bake into different colors. Here are Karl’s and my pieces.


I was getting ready to paint my HOT bisqued tea pot, almost ready to glaze.

I had to come in during the day, to get it glazed in time.

Alright, here are some clear labels of the things that we made. From left to right.

The far left, is a bowl that Karl made. The center, (In the center rear) is the orchid bowl Karl made, and a tray to sit it in. The far right, is my jar. The three images in the center row are my bowl. The bottom three are mugs and Karl’s jar and lid that he is very proud of.
