Finally Throwing at Home

I plugged in my wheel in my studio for the first time. I still have to put baseboards in the room, and do some wall repair, but I figured that shouldn't prevent me from giving it a whirl. The pictures are dark, since I don't have all the lighting set up in the room, but you'll get the idea. Little helper under the wheel...
Other helper, taking a break from sitting inches from me. Throwing pottery is so very interesting!
Even the wheel is fascinating all by itself!

I only threw three things - two closed forms and a mug. I'm contemplating making the closed forms into boxes - the first one could be a gnome...

I am thrilled to finally be able to use my studio!

WOW, I know it must feel great! Looks like it will be a great place to work. I'm envious. My dark, cramped little studio needs some remodeling. Congrats.

Hurray !!!!!!

And ha ha ... it must be so nice to "give it a whirl" whenever you have some time and inspiration.

I'm glad you have Apprentice Dogs to assist you.

Love the doggy-go-round! Maybe you should buy him a record player.
