A couple weeks ago I went to a Med School Wives event held at a local pottery shop. One wife, Rachel, a potter and artist, and taught us the fine art of attempting to make pottery without really succeeding. When she did it, it looked almost effortless. With my first attempt, I had water and clay spinning around in Chaos in no time. By the end of the session, each of us made a piece to take home (my piece heavily relied on Rachel's help.) We'll get to pick up our stoneware works of art after they've been glazed and fired.
