I have decided to finish working on the bowls that I started this semester. Then I will drop this class and re-register in the Spring under Continuing Education. And I plan to investigate getting hold of a pottery wheel so I can practice throwing at home. Who knows? Small steps...
Here are a 3 of the 4 bowls that I'm working on. Nothing special... just playing around with different underglazes. These are blue and green underglazes on Cinco Blanco greenware. I will fire these next week and then do a clear glaze over them... and fire again. So the tops will be colored and the bottom halves will be the natural fired clay.
And here's Julie... on the kitchen counter (I know... we try, but she's a stubborn lass).

BTW, anyone out there watching "The Outlander" - the new Starz series. It's been a while since I've read her books (Diana Gabaldon), but they were really a good read. I believe that she had 6 when I read them, but there may be a 7th out now (and there may have been some character spin-offs too). Anyway, we're really enjoying the new series so far.
