Ceramic Bowl 3 by 5ft-2-Eyes-of-Blue Ceramic Bowl 3 by 5ft-2-Eyes-of-Blue
A piece of pottery I threw at the wheel then glazed.

I went for a bit of a geometric look with the glazes for this one. I like how the three colors compliment each other personally. I'd say it has a warm and earthy look.

Ha! Toffee! No, no feel free to like them to tasty treats! That's definitely a compliment, lol! Thanks ^___^ I would like to find a way to get at the wheel again if I can. I would love to get better, and I've learned that the wheel does take a lot of time to master.

Oh yeah, if you get find a way to try your hand on a potter's wheel, I say jump on it! >XD And yes, it is VERY messy! Which is part of the fun!

You're welcome XD The next time I see a potter's wheel, I shall indeed tackle that thing to the ground and love it to death! I wonder if my Uni has an independent art club... :3

Maybe you can start an independent art club if there isn't one?

beautiful, i love the contrast of raw clay against a rich, glossy glaze.

I love this kind of stuff. Is the glaze safe to eat off of? Is it safe for acidic food/drink? It looks great! You must be having a great time with the classes!

Thank you.

Yes, all of the pieces I posted are safe to eat off or drink from. It's a requirement actually. Legally any pottery that is used for tableware must have safe glaze and be fired so it's no longer porous.

I did enjoy the class very much! I plan to see if I can find a way to make more pottery in the future.

This one reminds me of some ceramic plates I used to have back home. Shame my mom doesn't like this type of material...

I have some ceramic plates (factory made though) that have a similar geometric look as this bowl as well. That's part of the reason I wanted to try it out. ^__-

Oh? Your mom isn't a fan of ceramic plate ware?
