The challenge for this week at Three Muses was “turquoise”. Having used that color in another challenge recently, I decided to kinda cheat this week. I’ve been taking a pottery class and a couple pieces I’ve recently glazed were turquoise. So I will show those to you!
I did this mug on the wheel. This thing is the result of some battles royal with the clay I’m using. It is a very dense clay and it fights back on the wheel. I am soooo sore after a couple hours. I’m here to tell you… it is nowhere as easy to form up as that famous scene from “Ghost”!!
For the handle I braided three ropes of clay and attached it to the mug.
I call this my pizza plate! LOL It is a piece of my slab work. I could get lazy doing slabs. They are so easy and very fun. The texture in the bottom of the plate is from the canvas on the slab roller. I liked them and didn’t work them out of the clay.
I'm looking forward to learning more about pottery in my classes!
