In ceramics we are are wheel throwing. I like it because it allows me to make beautiful functional and non functional pots that have the craftsmanship that I was trying to get in hand building. Wheel throwing is SOOOO frustrating though! It takes lots and lots and LOTS of practice to be decent at throwing on the wheel, and commuting from Syracuse does not allow me to get up to the studio as often as I should. SO hopefully we will see how I do. The good thing about this class is that we get to resubmit projects at the end of the year, so even if my pottery isn’t so great for next week, I can keep throwing through out the semester and hopefully get better!
