Pottery in a Pandemic

In the beginning of 2020 the whole world shut down. As did the pottery class I was taking. With everyone hoarding toilet paper and stockpiling on sanitizer, I realized this whole lockdown would test my sanity so I talked my way into renting a pottery wheel from the owner of a local studio to keep occupied during the pandemic.

It was over this period of time when I began really practising throwing on the wheel, cylinder after failed cylinder, until I began working with the wheel rather than against it. My vessels were starting to become more centred as was I. Before long, my rental wheel needed returned, so I took the leap of purchasing my own and from then on, my garage became my studio.

I take interest in round bulbous forms, geometric lines, rough textured surfaces contrasted with soft satin glazes. I am by no means accomplished, and there always seems to be so much to know in the world of ceramics, but I am eager to learn.
