Ceramics

I am a fan of Claybird ceramics, so when I saw Yon was holding a class at Vida Flores in Newmarket, I signed up.

There were about 11 in the class and we played - mainly using the 'pinch pot' technique. At the conclusion of the class, Yon took everything home, fired and glazed and fired it again for us. I picked my finished works up yesterday.

It was really enjoyable (although harder than you think, so quite concentratey) and I am keen to do more of this.

  1. Lots of fun! Looks like porcelain to me, yes? Mr D's mum was a potter and over the years we've all had a little play on the wheel. And you are so right, it's not as easy as it looks!

  2. That looks like fun, have you seen this class at Nathan Homestead, might be a bit short notice for you though. Sometimes they have a weekend one too.
