Making Pottery at the Hive

The Hive offers all sorts of fun art classes, including pottery. I tried my hand at the pottery wheel recently, and had a lot of fun! Here are some photos.

You start by getting your hands dirty…

When you’re done, the clay has to be fired in the kiln with a whole batch of pottery. So, you have to wait a week or so, until it is ready to be painted.

Painting the fired clay comes next…

…then you cover it all with glaze and wait for it to be fired in the kiln again…

…and thus it emerges from the kiln! Not bad for a novice!

And it’s useful, too…
