This weekend I had the opportunity to attend an exclusive bloggers event.
12 other bloggers and myself were invited to Cahaba Clayworks.
We made our own pottery
under the instruction
of world renowned potter
( follow her on Twitter)
Her pottery Earthborn Pottery can be found in restaurants
Her pottery speaks to your primal soul and stirs something inside of you.
She and her partner
( who is now my hero)
(he did this in like 5 minutes)
hold classes at the studio
and let me just tell you they are a blast!
We learned how to throw on the wheel, which
is too fun!
Here I am
We were told to start,
we needed to form a ball
I was very excited and just knew I would be the star student
looked JUST like Larry's!!!
Well, things may have started off promising
but my clay had other ideas
Like the top flying off of the bowl and across the room.
But hey, Tena said
everyone can play chopsticks ....
Mozart takes practice!
So back at it
Rome wasn't built in a day,
third time is the charm ...
This is where Larry comes in...
he took my clay
he brought me brand new clay
he helped me!!!
Are you thinking what I am thinking?
It sure looked different when
Demi Moore and
Patrick Swayze did it
Under his expert guidance, I finally got it!
Larry told us that every piece of clay
wants to be a plate.
We have to help it reach it's true
Here is one of my pieces!
All total we got to make four.
Two on the wheel and two hand formed.
I promise when
I pick them up I will show them to you.
It takes about four weeks.
Although, I was perfectly happy to claim Larry's
as my own.
Tena let us all pick a bowl of our choice to bring home
I scored several pieces,
We just might have to give one away...
here on the blog???
It was so fun to meet other bloggers from the area.
Especially those that I read all the time!
It was cool to see everyone's face
when they would say
now you write????
Then the other would fill in the blank
and everyone would just fall out with
Oh my gosh!!
