I am in the process of trying to find a place where I can take lessons again. I know of a studio in KC Mo. but want to wait until they have classes in the day time. My goal is to learn how to throw plates. I have always wanted to do this but never had the chance to learn. I think about my wheel often and know soon I will be getting it out, dusting it off and throwing again.

Hello,anyone out there??Haven't heard from any other potters in awhile.Would love to hear about who is doing what with the clay.Last night I made a unique serving dish with underglazes,hope it turns out and makes it through the firings.I sold a similar dish a couple of days ago so need to replace that one with a new one at the gallery near where I live.I have been working so much with my jewelry that I have really gotten away from the reg.clay so I really had to focus on how to make that dish last night. It sure is starting to get cold up here in the valley where we live BUT it will get a lot colder before spring!!We live way out in the boondocks but love it out here.We can see a lot of wildlife(4legged)and we get to see the new born fawns in the spring which is so wonderful.We do love our wildlife!!We get visited by black bears,cougars and most all the critters.Although we don't get to actually see the bear and cougars because they are mostly nocturnal animals but hubby has seen some bear cubs and a huge cougar crossing our road.I hope to see them while we still live out here.Anyway, back to the clay.I have had more sales from our little local senior center than anywhere else lately.We get mostly free classes offered to us and now some of the girls are makeing pine needle baskets and I am supplying them with the ceramic bowls for the bottoms.They then weave the pine needles into the ceramic bowls which I have taken the time to punch holes around the upper rim for them.Sold several bowls and they want more!!We had a little craft show a couple of weeks ago and I actually sold well there,maybe will do even better next year.I love the clay and will do more clay work today and make some more jewelry next week.
