Thrown Clay Pots

We just spent some time in the Florida Keys and I had some time to explore The Art Studio on Marathon (http://keysartstudio.com/). They offer paint-your-own-pottery, access to pottery wheels, slab roller and a glass fusing studio. I took advantage of 3 of the 4 :)… It had been awhile (high school) since I’d used a pottery wheel, so I took one of the classes they offer weekly. Lynn already had one-pound balls of clay prepared so we could get right to throwing. The first one didn’t make it through the end of the throwing process–it ended up in the scrap clay pile to be re-used. Here are the pots that survived. There are definite flaws in most of them, especially the pinkish one with the blue sprays. Pretty glazes, though. Now I need to find a place closer than Florida that has wheels.
