Wheel Throwing

January 13, 2015

Gina Background BlurredToday was the first day of a pottery class that Kristin and I are taking.  It was tons of fun!  Kristin has taken several classes before and has been throwing pots for many years, so she just got right to work making beautiful things.  🙂  But I’ve never done anything with clay before, so I was raptly listening to the instructor, long-time friend of the Looneys and former correspondent for the original Wunderland.com webzine, Gina Mai Denn.  Here she is demonstrating how to center your clay on the wheel.

And here’s Kristin pulling it off like a pro!  🙂

In a future post, I’ll show you not only what we end up making in this class, but all the other beautiful pieces that Kristin and Alison have made over the years.
