The Great Welsh Clay Challange

The other evening I watched the The Great Pottery Throw Down and really enjoyed it, afterwards I was thinking it would be fun to have a go at pottery.
Next day, ping e-mail from the lady who sends out the local event news to everyone, there was a play with clay session in the village hall this evening £12.
I phoned up and booked myself a place and let Bovey Belle know about it as well.
We both arrived and before long we were starting on our pinched pots
 BB getting stuck into pinching her pot
 I had something different in mind for mine

 my first pot become a money bag
 BB had a bowl and a salt pig done by the time I finished my little bag
 my next piece was a tea light holder
 I had a lemon shape in mind don't know why
 I made some legs for this one
 BB made another bowl that she was going to put ball feet on
 and she decorated the inside of her salt pig
 my two clay pots
 think I should reserve a spot in the Tate.
We had a lovely evening, our clay work now goes off to be fired and when it comes back we will get to add some colour and glaze to complete them, we have both signed up for the next session were we will make a decorative tile.


  1. Looks like you had a great night. Will you get to colour and fire them?

  2. Looks great fun (memories of pottery in school coming back to me) and even better something to bring home eventually.

  3. What fun, lucky you to be able to have local classes.

  4. Great fun! All of the pieces are great aren't they! xx

  5. Very clever designs. You appear to be a natural!

  6. I really loved this and can't wait to do some more. Thanks for taking photos of mine for me Dawn. I'll remember to take my camera next time.
