Pottery Class Week 3

There was only 2 of us at pottery class this week, so we got lots of attention for our "slab" task. Basically we had to roll our clay between 2 long rulers as thinly as possible. Using a pattern I made a rectangular box, with lid and a mouse.




They have to be left for a week to harden like leather.
Next week I will assemble my "cheese dish/tray"

Watch this space!


  1. Oh My Goodness !
    It looks like you are having such a good time.
    I can't wait to see what glazes you will be using.

    cheers, parsnip

  2. This is lovely. I remember doing a slab dish when I took a pottery course quite a few years ago now. Your mouse is so cute.

  3. Love the mouse! I wish we had a class like that around here.

  4. You go from strength to strength Denise - making fantastic progress. It is a difficult one that so few attend the class but it does make sure you get a lot of attention.

  5. Very good!
    Katney sent me the link to your blog as I lost it when i changed the layout and couldn't access it from your profile. So now I'm back!

  6. Great idea to add the mouse to the cheese plate :) Your results look very professional!

  7. These classes are coming round quickly, aren't they? I like the box and the mouse! Will they eventually be decorated? Would be good to see the finished articles.
