Clay Bowls

Yesterday I had my pottery class again. I was excitedly looking forward to it all week! I couldn't wait to try out new things and this time I took pictures.

In the photo above you can see the piece I made last time. It dried since then but it's not fired yet.

Yesterday I made this bowl. (I'm so fond of bowls! My class-fellows mainly make ceramic figures like cute Easter bunnies and cats and frogs. So far I feel no desire to try things like that. I feel so much more inclined to make bowls.) I began to form it freehand but my teacher gave me a mould so I could make the walls thinner more easily. Afterwards I impressed decorations with several tools and shaky hands and I enjoyed it very, very much.
