Pottery Class Mug

I‘ve really been enjoying this hand-building pottery class (taught at the Saint John Arts Centre by Darren Emenau) that I’ve been taking, but it’s almost torture only being able to do things once a week. By the time we’ve had an hour of instruction, we only have two hours to build our items. Today we made mugs. I’m pretty happy with mine and I hope it turns out. I had planned to add some designs to it after I put it together, but once I got it done, I liked it the way it was. I guess we’re to expect about 13% shrinkage by the time it’s done, so it’ll be neat to see how it comes out.
