    I'm in a 1 semester beginning clay class. (Next semester I'll be in the advanced clay class) I was just wondering if any other byc members make things with clay. I'll post pictures of my work when somebody else posts their work. [​IMG]

    I took a semester in college (back in they day...) and LOVED it! My mom took all of my pieces and said I can't have them back until I stop moving, thats 15 more years before I can retire out of the coast guard. I think its just an excuse to keep them around!

    Ok.. so here's some of the stuff I made (TotalColour, I love your luminary!) Unless noted they are cone 6. As you'll see I both handbuild and throw on a wheel, and like to try lots of different styles. I love playing with clay ...hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    Dinner Plates (I made them small intentionally 'cause I'm trying to diet -- the one is on a 'normal' size plate for comparison)

    Some Vases/Pencil holders:

    I call this a wall pocket, it's handbuilt you can put flowers (dry or fresh), or match sticks (hang next to a fireplace maybe) in it.

    This is the penguin pitcher I made for my mom, very similiar to the Peep Pitchers you see to the left

    The Frogs, I like to give these to new neices along with the 'frog prince' book and a stuffed frog:

    This picture is kinda fuzzy, these are beads I made, they are low fire with majolica glazing

    Some more majolica items:

    And last, but not least, the most favorite thing I've ever made...my table lamp!!! My husband helped by making the wooden base

    Been a lot of years, but there a kiln in my garage, a ton of molds and most are from the 60's to maybe 2005.

    I just have a really bad brain and can't remember how to work the silly kiln. Maybe one of these days. I used to be pretty good on a wheel, but my hands cramp too much these days, I do have some cool molds though.

    Good Job everyone!

    I'm anxious to get back to school on monday so I can throw another vase. I think I watched enough youtube videos to figure out how to center much easier [​IMG]
