Thanks to those of you who replied here or to me privately after my
first post.
Wanted to let you all know that I have now started on the pottery class,
and that I am thrilled! I have been limited in my work as an artist,
doing mostly works on paper and canvas - and now that I have re-tasted
the texture of clay and can create in 3D, there is no turning back.
Working with clay is wonderful and exactly what I have been looking for!

It's too early to say if I will study pottery full time later but I
definitely will do ceramics as a hobby. Even if I had a year of clay in
art school many years ago I am still a total beginner at this, and I
know pottery is a life long study. Life is all I got, why not spend it
learning as much as I can while enjoying the process! I have no idea if
the bowls I made are going to survive drying or burning, but that is not
important at this early stage. I have started on a long journey, but the
first baby steps has been most rewarding for me personally.

Reading your posts with interest and have visited the home pages some of
you have- this is a great group!


PS: Torgeir - jeg kikket innom sidene dine fra verkstedet -
