More Hand Building in my Pottery Class
The Love of Learning New things should keep us all motivated each day!
Today my dear Lin taught me more wonderful hand-building techniques. She truly is a gem to be around and learn from. I feel like it is taking me forever, but she is so thoughtful about each week's class and thinks and anticipates what I might need from week to week. This canister is suppose to be a Flour container. Currently at home, I have antique glass ones. I want to make a mess of canisters all different shapes but same glaze and clay. The challenge is to get the lid to fit. Honestly, I thought that was the hardest part of the learning exercise. I have been working on this for two weeks. I love Greek architecture and happen to live in a Greek Revival style home. This is suppose to look like a column.

Today, before my class, I worked on some new stuff for the High Point Furniture Market. I am going to post pictures of these items VERY soon. I need to wait a bit--instructions from my dear husband who runs SPICHER AND CO.
I hope you all enjoy my entry today. I had so much fun painting and hand-building with clay. I am a blessed lady to be able to do what I love!
