making pottery is hard

three whole days of creativity. turns out operating a pottery wheel successfully is rather difficult. and while you can manage to make something in only three days, it might be a bit on the wonky side. but i enjoyed decorating my creations very much. and i enjoyed spending three days in a wonderful creative space.

the weather was crazy over the weekend, covering all the seasons in the space of a few minutes. it was good to be inside at the wheel. even if the wheel was very difficult.

a few of the pieces i ended up making. they'll be glazed and fired and i'll be able to take them home in early june. looking forward to seeing how they look when they're finished!

and now, packing up my suitcase and getting ready for the week ahead. yoga, seafood and brussels on the horizon. it seems life is as ever-shifting as the weather around here...

I found the wheel very difficult too. I sat only three times at it and managed to only make one little bowl. So I decided that I won't do it again this year anyway and am still making the pots and everything by hand.AriadnefromGreece!

Looks to me like you mastered the wheel quite well. Those pieces are going to be fabulous and one-of-a-kind when they're finished!
Have fun in Brussels!!!
