So, after 4 weeks of pottery lessons, I have concluded that I will not be a potter. I still LOVE pottery, and will just have to get used to the idea that I will have to purchase it, not make it.
I discovered that throwing pots was just too strenuous for me -- it takes a lot of muscle to do this! So, I thought that maybe hand-building was the way to go, but I soon found out that I wasn't very good at that, either! Also, I'm an Instant Gratification girl. If it can't be finished in a couple of hours, I'm just not interested.
Unless you own your own kiln and wheel, you have to take weeks to get a finished product. And, those things are really expensive, so that's out! Oh well, I'm glad I took the lessons. One more thing off my bucket list.
