Pottery Making Class

Mr. Milk and I were given a gift certificate for a pottery making class at Christmas. We'd been postponing it as neither of us was overly excited about it. Ok, maybe I was less excited than he was, but its not like he was doing somersaults!

So since our time in Vancouver is dwindling down, we thought we might as well go get this over and done with try this. We were the only ones there with the instructor, and I think we both had more fun than we thought we would! Here's some proof.

Getting there

Look at that!

Shaping up nicely. Its so much harder than it looks. 

The end result!

Now the bowls need to dry, be put in the oven, and we get to go back in a week or so to paint and glaze them! Thats the part I am looking forward to. We made some other trinkets but they are kind of crap not worth showing!

Have you guys been up to anything you don't usually do? Or been surprised by an activity you thought wouldn't be that interesting?

When I was in highschool we were forced to take an Art class and we spent the entire semester working on our masterpieces. I wanted a huge turtle. Well, once the Prof. put it in the kiln there was an air pocket and it exploded ruining everyone's project. I felt awful.

Right now I'm learning how to scuba dive...i'm a little scared of the water, but i'm learning bc my husband loves it and want to do it together!

Oh how fun! My fiance makes pottery, and we have a ton of his pieces at our apartment. He has sold some of his pieces and is a member of an exclusive pottery studio here in San Francisco. He's going to make plates for the head table for our wedding. I can't wait to see what he comes up with!

Your bowls turned out awesome! I would definitely love to try that out. Can't wait to see the finished product!

Over the winter my husband bought me a pair of skis for Valentine's day. The kicker- I had never been skiing before in my life and I hate being cold. Good thing after the first time out I fell in love with skiing....lol

Oh come on, where are the pictures from the Ghost scene? You can't have a couples pottery making class without it surely.

Mrs T said...

That looks like fun! All I can picture in my head when I think of clay on wheels is that bit in Ghost. Too funny.

Ooh, this looks so fun! I've always wanted to try it, but I bet anything I made would totally fall apart :)

Stopping by from SITS, hope you're having a great weekend.
