Wheel throwing ceramic class: I'm in love!
Ceramics and pottery have been one of my life long fascination. I love it and I've always wanted to learn about it but with no luck. But last month I saw that the El Paso Museum Of Art was offering a class and I signed up immediately crossing my fingers that It filled up so they didn't cancel it. Yesterday, I had my first class, and let me tell you, now I believe in love at first sight. I took this photo of the table with the samples when I arrived and then the one of the wheel and that was it. As soon as I put my hands on the clay I couldn't do anything else.
Touching the clay, playing with it, throwing it in the wheel, everything was beautiful. Of course the control freak in me wanted me to do something perfect and when It didn't turned out how I wanted I got a bit frustrated. But I think this class will teach me more than pottery. It will teach me patience. It will teach me humility. It will teach me to let go of control and let the process take its course. I think this would make a great hobby.
I'm so excited I can't wait for my next class!!!
Meanwhile I'm gathering inspiration on Pinterest from amazing artists that you can see here, and the pictures were taken with instagram. where you can follow me as danitaart.
