I know it sucks, but I’m in love! Also, it’s my first, so by the laws of nature, I have to be in love.
I began the class 5 weeks ago and after the first session I was not in the best of spirits. Turns out being a ceramicist is actually pretty difficult. I am not the best student or persevere-er, however I get to make things with my hands and it has been rewarding. Working on the wheel can be relaxing and meditative, although sometimes, I have to admit, I feel a tingling desire to grab the clay and throw it against the wall whenever it’s not coming out the way I want. Why didn’t anyone ever teach me how to deal with disappointment?
I hope you are as excited as I am to share in whatever junk I create next!
