Last night in ceramics class I finally got to use the potters wheel for the first time. I:
  • made a small, funny-looking bowlish thing
  • tried to make another one, but chunks of it kept flying off and I eventually gave up
  • managed not to step on the revolving platform thing, and therefore managed not to fling myself across the floor

For a first attempt, I consider it a success, especially with regard to point three above. I am a major klutz, so not hurting myself is a major milestone for me. Anyway, it was fun, and the more advanced students were very supportive. And it was really goopy and messy, which can be a good thing once in a while.
