I’m taking a pottery class — wheel throwing. I’m terrible at it, but so proud of myself whenever I do anything close to how the teacher explains it’s supposed to be! 💪 I think it’s important to always be learning new skills, to always be a beginner, to always do things that make you uncomfortable. And best of all, today we learned how to fix our pots! I was able to carve my misshapen pot from last week into something cool and much closer to round (last photo). 🎉 Just 5 weeks of class left. It’s going way too fast! #julieloveslearning

    I took pottery in graduate school but I have a weird thing about wet hands so stuck with the other means of creating going forward. 😂

    Beautiful pots! I tried wheel throwing 30+ years ago and I could not center on the wheel for the life of me! Maybe I should give it another go!

    Your doing really great! Looks centered and for me at least that was the hardest part!

    That is awesome! Growing up around SeagroveNC, people work years to even get to the stage of making pottery for others.

    I did ceramics for a while when I had time to get dirty and then clean again. I loved it. Best tip ever: put warm water in your bucket.

    Taking pottery classes taught me that as an artist I’m more into surface decor than structure. Every class I take teaches me about myself even if all I learn is I dislike the subject.
