My nephew made me do it!

Really, he was the inspiration to get me throwing today.

This is what he accomplished with a foot powered wheel. I’m so impressed!!! He lives way out in Connecticut and is a freshman in high school. He is a fab tuba player, amazing student and a pretty darn good artist when he wants to.

I’ve been looking for something to kick start my ceramics and this seemed to be it. This evening  I managed to do a few balls of clay. It’s been a year since throwing but I guess the technique is sort of there. More repetition needed and a scale to weigh the clay would help ( I wonder where it is… somewhere in the studio mess I’m sure). 16 cylindars completed to test a new surface technique!
