My Artful Friday #3: Turquoise Pottery

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!
