Wet Pot Wednesday: Getting Back in the Groove

My mom and I started our pottery class again tonight and we both had a little trouble getting back into our pottery groove. I'm very happy to FINALLY be back in pottery class!

At the end of the last class, I had a really hard time remembering all the things I made and that made it nearly impossible to find my things among the mountains of unglazed pottery. So my goal this time around is it document all my pots the night I make them, thus: Wet Pot Wednesday.

This is what I ended up with tonight:

After I cut the altered form vase off the bat, I realized that I forgot to trim up the bottom. I can't put it back on the wheel to trim the bottom because the top isn't round. So I'll be trimming this one by hand...something to remember next time.

I'm trying to be really creative with my shapes because my dad told me I'm not allowed to bring home anything that goes in the cupboard--they're absolutely stuffed!

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:

This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
