Pottery Memories

I was just reading Morning Ramble's post about the Homestead Heritage Craft Fair. She shared several pictures of some of the pottery made there and it reminded me of the pottery I used to make years ago, back at my first teaching job (in a boarding school). Several of the wives and one other female teacher and I used to get together on Monday evenings tomake pottery. I had never done anything like that, but was thrilled with my first efforts. I made a set a dishes, complete with glasses and mugs, salad plates and dinner plates. I made a soup toureen, some bookends, several vases, tree ornaments,and a bunch of other things that I don't remember now.

I gave most of it away for Christmas presents that first year when I had NO money... One of them resurfaced just this week at my sister's house filled with beautiful roses. She had put it in a niche in her newly redesigned kitchen. I was pleased that it had a new place to shine.

Wow Rondi, you could quit your day job and take up pottery, that is beautiful.
I am in awe.
I took pottery classes once, but had such a crush on the instructor I never learned much, just sat and looked stary eyed at this Hippy Man, once he stood behind me while I was at the wheel and he put his arms around me to help me fashion a piece and I about died ! Oh to be young and foolish : )
