pottery update!

(my mom in law wid her dragon fly mug with "mummy" written on it.)

Its been a while since I updated on the new obsession of mine!
My pottery mania has been growing stronger and stronger and am learning by leaps and bounds... and loving every minute of it-more than I thought I would!
so here are a few pictures of my first glazed and finished work...
excuse the weird and lopsided shapes..
you have to remember that these are my first bowls and mugs...
I promise I WILL get better!!  :-)

mugs for me and my love... "me and u"

another set of the colors

a snack bowl.. experimented with shape and love it!

an organically shaped poppy snack bowl (tried a kind of a paint on it called underglaze)

love the perfect shape and pearly colors!

another bowl with an interesting combination of colors
this is called a "yarn bowl" where you put the wool in the bowl and pull the yarn out of the hole so it doesnt tangle-the two other holes are for the needles!
a weird shaped mug wid a spout...mayb creamer?

love the intense red brown of the bowl...

my first crudely made T-lite holder

Its so much fun to see the finished product becoz till they come out of the kiln you can make a guess at the color and finish but its always a surprise how the colors/glazes mix with one another and come out absolutely beautiful!!
have made a few more stuff-still gotto get fired and glazed...
they might be a little better than this lot but I love the imperfections of my first attempt!
what do you think?
