Im doing a ceramic unit at Tafe and thought I'd post what I have been doing.
I went in today hoping to get some stuff fired but no luck, while I was there I did throw 8 pots however. So quite pleased with that.

These are the first three pots I made, thought they might be ok as small cactus pots in the garden

These five are my next attempt, first attempt at glazing. I was pretty happy when I went to get them, despite the colours being differant to what I had planned. ( I just  dont get how a green turns brown but hey............ these things happen!)




Thanks for looking!

thanks for your kind words!
 yes, I am trying to make them a lot less chunkey, and not squish them when I get them off the wheel.
 Show us your stuff when you get a chance,

You're off to a good start! Throwing is hard. I always had trouble thinning my pots out. I bet your stuff is going to look really professional soon!

thanks again for the comments!
I get to see my glazed pieces all fired tomorrow, just before assessment lol.
My daughter came over yesterday and showed me how to do some scultural type pieces which I really enjoyed, out of paper clay ( I postede pics ), and I made some pressed cast skulls.....way back.
I havent posted pics of the skulls as I gave them away as presents.
If I get a chance next year to use the wheel, thinner and taller is my aim!
take care
