My pottery lessons: Throwing on a wheel

I learned that throwing clay takes a lot of practice and then some more practice. My friend Lily said she threw over a hundred pieces before she did one worthy enough to keep.

I did throw one very nice small bowl. The teacher was very surprised when he saw the bowl and asked how I did it.

I answered, “I have no idea. I was throwing a large tea mug when all of a sudden it flopped into a bowl!” It’s the only thrown piece I have after five weeks of lessons. I call it “The Accident.”
