When I drove to Pennsylvania to pick our daughter up to bring her home for the Thanksgiving holiday, I met her at the college’s pottery studio, where she was busily finishing up pieces to go into the kiln.
This gave me the opportunity to photograph what she has been doing in her wheel throwing class. The scope, quality, and quantity of the work she’s done in just a few short months is amazing.
She has experimented with all sorts of glazes, made nesting bowls (going into a juried show), made a “historical set” decorated with cuneiform (that has yet to be glazed), made a large lidded pot (being finished as I watched), a huge 14″ platter (so difficult!), and the lovely sgraffito plate above as well.
I was very impressed, since I know the kind of time and skill this array of pieces represents. She’s taking another pottery class next term, and taking 18 credits in order to be able to do it…
Anyway, enjoy these photos of her recent work.
