new pottery

a few months ago i started taking a pottery class, which i love. the teacher is great, and she has a tiny studio/shop/classroom which happens to be on my block! today i threw a few pots on the wheel for the first time in years, and although i am very much out of practice, it was wonderful.
and, i got my first finished piece back, this plate.

That is so lovely! I like the colour of the plate. It must feel great to eat from a plate you made.

that is such a nice plate - well done - love the glaze - are you going to carry on potting?

thanks for your kind comments! i am definitely going to continue with my class. i'm happy with how the plate turned out, but what i love more than anything is being in the moment of making the pottery.
