OK, don't laugh. Seriously, if you laugh, you will hurt my feelings. In Tuesday night's pottery class, we glazed our first pot, and tonight, I got it back after firing.
Before I show you pictures, let me explain. This piece is only the third one I threw, on my very first night of class. After doing two others, I was tired and I really goofed it up, so it is pretty wobbly. Next, I was trying to do a black cat silhouette with a rubber stamp in black underglazing, as a sort of signature, and I had too much glaze, so it made a big smear. I decided to do a random pattern of black splodges instead. Finally, I didn't really choose my colors carefully. Some people were working with "paprika" and "sea foam," so I just used them since they were out.
OK. Enough exposition. Here is the finished piece, from several different angles:
Oh, what the hell. Go ahead and laugh. I did.
