Throwing Day (Part 1)

A couple of weeks before Christmas I had the best day ever in the studio!  I got to spend the afternoon throwing on the wheel with Noah and then with Anna’s kids.  It was so much fun and extra messy!  That day definitely confirms that I want to one day teach classes from my home studio.  Noah, however, needs some time to fall in love with ceramics the way I did.  He was not too happy to be touching the clay.  Ok, ok, he was interested in the clay spinning on the wheel and watching me work the clay, but once he touched it…different story!  I don’t think he liked the feel of the wet clay moving under his little hands and fingers.  I think it may have freaked him out.  He would cry and turn to me, but then be interested again and want to give it another try.  Like all good parents do, Andrew and I laughed!  It was just too cute and too funny.  Don’t worry, I didn’t make him play in the mud the whole day, but I did want him to give it a try.  I think a year from now, if he is anything like me, he will have NO problem playing in the mud.  Anna took all of these photos.  It was a really fun afternoon.  (Anna has a new website, by the way.  If you haven’t seen it yet or have never heard of her…check her out here. It is awesome!)

    Love the lat pic esp! Noah’s feet on nor thigh and Andrews hands on the other. Don’t know why but it’s a very tender shot, somehow. 🙂ReplyCancel
