Been making things! A few people have asked about how pottery is going, and the answer is, extremely well. I'm very happy with my instructor and the fact that he's now teaching on Saturday mornings instead of when I ought to be at work. Last term I lost a few pieces in new and interesting ways, but I did come out with one pie plate of the three I threw, plus a few other things I liked pretty well.

This term I'm focusing on wall thickness, which I thought was my weakest point during the last class, and experimenting with some new decorating techniques. It's entirely possible that I'll demand my birthday-dinner guests take bowls away with them, since I am making many ramen bowls! So far I'm happy with their improved lightness, and I'm making them in some shapes that I wouldn't otherwise have explored. I tried a stenciling technique yesterday that worked extremely well, so that's exciting too.

New clever setup for seeing bowls inside and out! Probably needs more covering of the rack, thread spool, and photographer. :)
