As mentioned, I had an awesome pottery class my freshman year. Two things I made:

My first pinch pot ever:

Raku's a wonderful thing.

I use it as a tea candle holder, you can see the candle bit in this picture. The metallic glaze looks awesome when it's lit.

This one was built from an extruder form (that's what they're called, right? It's been a while since the class)

It's functional.

Another view. (I know it's completely unnecessary)

Thanks for looking!

I love RAKU!! I also love your extruded piece (yes it's called an extruder Cheesy) It's odd and unusual yet usual at the same time!! Good Job!

I seriously love raku!!  Your pinch pot is fab.  We just had a raku firing at my high school (the AP-3D friendship pot we made def. exploded...) but it was fantastic!!  The watering can is nifty, too!  I like the fake out screws.

The yarn seduced me, I swear!!

Thanks for your great comments! I see I have some fellow raku lovers.  Cheesy

And M-alina - sorry your pot exploded...but exploded stuff can look pretty awesome too.
