Remember Me: Garden Stone with Polly Noll

About three years ago, I enrolled two of my kids in a Beginning Wheel class at Crossing's, so I could tag along.

Neither of those kids really enjoy throwing on the wheel, but I have been hooked ever since.  I may not have learned much in that first class, but it was a slippery slope to another beginning class, a surface treatment class and an intermediate throwing class.

Somewhere in between the classes at Crossing's, I purchased a small portable pottery wheel to use at home, so my hands could spend as much time as possible in the clay - if only moments between kids, and house, and work...

Pottery is a medium where you can try anything with nothing to lose!

I can see something on a video or in a catalogue and try it, or change it, or scrap the whole thing- and start with something new.

I have been throwing on the wheel for three years. With a great baseline from the Beginning and Intermediate Classes - it's what I need to keep experimenting and learning. Not to mention, how this process allows me to escape and center a bit of my creative soul.

Here's the perfect opportunity to create a gift for our lost friend; at their resting place, under a favorite tree, in the garden or on the kitchen counter! We'll walk through the process beginning with the shape and design and then, at the second class will move into color selection and detail. They'll be fired to the point where they are fully vitrified and okay to be outside, even in the winter weather. Bring your ideas and grieving heart for some good healing and smiles.

Class to be held Sunday, July 11; 12noon-3pm and Sunday, August 1; 12-1:30.
Price is $59 + $19 supply/firing fee.
