well here goes nuthin'

Its been over 10 years since I've had my hands in clay
and first day of class, I'm excited & a little nervous.

I've purposely take a class that is the antithesis of my training...
a low fire, hand-building class with a focus on surface & decoration.
(I'm a slipcasting, porcelain & stoneware, high fire girl).
My idea of surface design was to use matt white glaze,
or perhaps - cobalt blue.  

We started making flowers out of clay...
gulp, sooo not my thing.
but actually kind of a fun technique to play with.
here's day one's work:
