Great meals made easy!
Cooking has long been a great creative outlet for me, but it isn’t the only one. When I was working I always wanted to learn how to make pottery. (No, it wasn’t after I saw Ghost…people always mention that to me.) Actually, I was inspired by what I saw each year at the Ann Arbor Art Fair. At the Art Fair you can find some of the most beautiful, unique, and creative pottery that you’ve ever seen. When I retired, I started taking ceramics classes at the Ann Arbor Art Center. It’s a wonderful community resource and I found a really talented and supportive teacher named Daria.
Recently, a friend of mine suggested that my food followers might be interested in my pottery…seeing my progress and some of my work. So here it is….please keep in mind that I haven’t been at this for long and it isn’t as easy as one might think. Having said that, I think some of the pieces are pretty good. The first group represents my very first year of effort. I will share my progress in another post.
The first group was “thrown” on a potter’s wheel. It’s a challenging process and takes years to really master and create more complex pieces, but it’s a good place to start. My instructor told me it took her three years to try the wheel again after her first attempts.
Kathy, these are beautiful! I’ve heard you talk about your pottery work, but this is my first time seeing it and I am very impressed!
Nice Work Kathy. You’re doing really well!
I love that last one Kathy. Sooooo elegant!
