First Cup

This morning, I went with Justine and Tonya (friends from Club-E) to Hallowell Clay Works for an instruction session on making pottery mugs. Justine had seen an ad at Slate's... the deal is you get to make a mug for yourself, and also one to go on display at Slate's. The mug at Slate's is for sale to the general public, proceeds go to a scholarship fund. What a great way to try something out and to benefit others! This was my first time working with clay, though I've had it in my mind for quite a long time now that I'd like to try it. I'm hooked! I love the feel of the clay in my hands, and I really liked manipulating it into different shapes and forms. We didn't get to bring them home today, they'll be dried, fired and glazed at the studio. We'll be picking up our final product in a week and a half or so... I'll post another picture on at that time!
First Cup can be found in Larry Unger's Reckless Reel.
