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.
