Pottery Love

I have been doing pottery on and off since I was in school but a few years ago I decided to take some classes and get a bit more serious about it. Where I live in Montreal there is a pottery studio 5 minutes walk from my home that has wonderful, experienced teachers and students. Well I went for my classes and I fell in love. I fell in love with the art and the process of doing pottery, on the wheel and building them by hand. It is such a time consuming endevour to make one small pot.... make the pot, trim the pot, dry the pot, bisque the pot, glaze the pot, into the kiln it goes again and then the full on anticipation of what can happen to your beloved pot (it never turns out how you thought it would!!) 

I have been off this summer and have been in the pottery studio everyday. I love to work at this craft and I love to be around other artists that do it too. I admire great potters here in my studio and out in the world so today I am offering you a few photos of pottery that I love and a photo of mine as well.
