I didn't realize there were so many steps involved in making pots until I started making some of my own. Throwing on the wheel and creating some pieces myself has given me a much deeper appreciation for this art form and admiration for people who do this on a continuous basis.
The three little pots you see below were thrown on the wheel, dried for a few weeks to leather-like hardness before trimming, and then I covered them in a layer of slip before firing them in the kiln. I will have to glaze these pots and fire them again one last time before they're finally complete.
For the small pots below I'm trying out a new technique, I'm adding little flowers and leaves which I made using some cute little molds. You first have to roll out a bit of clay onto the mold and then attach it to the pot using slip.
Once the designs are attached they look like this.
I can't wait to see how these pieces turn out.

I love making stuff. I'm constantly experimenting with new mediums and techniques and I aim to inspire you to create some things of your own as well.
