Bettina's Bowl

Bettina has always seemed to have an interest in creating art and building things.  When we had an opportunity to let her loose on a pottery wheel, we were really excited to see what she would think of it.



At first, she was a little hesitant.

She looked over for some reassurance.

I got her started and soon she was following everything the potter said.

They decided she would make herself a special bowl.

Watching her work the clay was amazing.

Her finished bowl was beautiful... Until they scraped a number into it.

We were supposed to fire, glaze, and re-fire her bowl, but the clay co-op lost it.  Quite nicely, they let us come make another, which they also lost.

At least we have beautiful photos and the knowledge that we should let her spend more time pottery making!
