I’m In Love…

I’m in love–in love with pottery, in particular with making buttons.  Last night was my final stoneware class  and I was sad to see it end. We had  a sort of  "pottery party" to close the class–looking at our work, talking about what went well, what didn’t…all while standing around the pottery studio eating hummus, wheat crackers and drinking wine. It was quite the combination.
I was glad to get some time with my instructor at the end of the evening after everyone had left to ask him my little list of questions. We talked mostly about ‘where to go from here.’ I’ll be taking another class after Christmas and he said he’ll comp me some clay and glaze. I’m anxious to have some more time for trial and error, because just looking at the things I made, I can tell I have a lot to learn, to try.
So for now, I’m happy to look at my buttons, put them on a few sweaters I’m knitting, maybe as a little detail on a hat, maybe see if they’ll sell on etsy (to support a bit of my next class tuition), put a few of the little dishes around my house (emma has already claimed one for her barrettes), and wait for a new class with new opportunities.
