I went in with zero ideas on what to make and felt somewhat aimless during the three hours. I had an idea that I would use these 8 weeks as a way to work on my skills and not worry so much about the outcome. I still like that idea but I realize that I need something to attempt in order to work on my skills. Next week I hope to go in with a better plan.
I did managed to hand build a weird leaf vase and added some underglaze that I think will look cool after firing. I also spent some time on the wheel working with what I considered to be small pieces of clay but my shoulders are still sore today. It was still as fun and messy as I remembered it to be.

|Vase again, I'm nervous the petal thing may crack. I'll find out next week!|
