I have always had fascination with how things are made. Seeing things on a shelf in a store always makes me wonder more about where it was made and by whom. For years, I have driven by a ceramics studio near my house, always wondering about it. I decided to sign up for a weekly evening class. I am now in my second session. Learning to throw the clay and form it on the wheel is no easy project. It takes concentration, patience and strength. There are a lot of pieces that I turn on the wheel that don’t turn out, but I am learning from each experience. This all started with my 2015 New Year’s resolutions: I wanted to challenge myself to a different creative medium. I have a few weeks left in my class. Don’t worry – I am not quitting my day job!
