A group of my dearest friends (who happen to be artists) and I gathered together at Steve's studio in Culver City -- Steve Gardner is a gifted and prolific ceramicist and he was gracious enough to allow each of us to throw on his wheel.
About 19 years ago I learned how to throw pottery and I loved it. Took a long break and I can say it was declicious to be in wet clay again, hypnotized by the spinning wheel and water, and watching as my hand formed a lump, then a tube, then a vase. Such a beautiful practice to work together with so many elements at once and enjoy the surprise of how it all turned out.
Makes me crave more... super fun. The image has my vase and others my friends made. Everyone did a great job and above all, it was FUN :)
