My clay story began more than 18 years ago. The first time I walked into a pottery class and watched a master potter throw on the wheel, I fell in love with clay and everything about the process of creating pottery. My first instructor was very gifted but she also made all of her students feel like they could throw on the wheel too. (Hi Pauline!!!)
I never questioned that I would be able to throw, I just did it! Sure, it took a while but I loved working with clay so much that I was happy every time I had a chance to go to the studio and improve. I would count down the days to my next class. There is nothing like the joy of watching your clay pieces move through the stages. Throwing, trimming, bisque firing, glazing and glaze firing and then the anticipation of seeing the final result. Every class was like Christmas morning for me.
Finally, I moved on from the community class studio…
