Adriana did a post about the first pots she ever made.
Below is the first pot I ever made. I was friends with a RISD grad student who started teaching me how to throw. It's glazed with a apple wood ash from wood burned in my fireplace. It's one of the few pots I ever did that was reduction fired.
I loved doing this but stopped when I moved out of Providence six months later. Twenty years would pass before I returned to what I thought was an interesting little side line became a complete obsession.
I have pots from when I started again in 1985, but they are all packed away. Someday I will ferret them out and look at them.
I find it most interesting that with all my moving about (and I moved a lot in my younger days) I always managed to hold on to this pot and have it in whatever studio I was using at the time.
It's hot and steamy here....thunder showers this evening.
This post will also be on Mud Colony, everyone should stop by and see the posts there.
Have a cool week end and as always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*
