A cracked plate

After missing a week of pottery (the studio was closed for a week), I've found a cracked plate. It was a little sad because it was a decent plate. Too bad I didn't run a wire underneath two weeks ago. So, the bottom was still stuck to the bat and the pot was shrinking while it dries. Therefore, this big "S" crack formed. Oh well, at least one of them survived. The good thing is that I was able to make 2 more plates and 2 bowls. And yes, I did run a wire underneath the 2 plates. So, hopefully, no more "S" crack accidents.

Some more pictures (these pots are made from mid-cal 0 clay):

2nd pottery studio has started

The 2nd pottery studio had started 2 weeks ago. Haven't been making too much stuff yet. I did make a "square" shaped mug but then I trimmed through the bottom last week. (I haven't done that for a long time....) Oh well, there goes my first "square shaped mug. It was kind of nice too. I guess I will just have to make another one. However, I am a bit bored from making mug, so probably won't see me making a mug for a while. So, what am I making nowadays?! Some plates....we'll see how it goes...

Just got a call from the studio the other day, they said the studio it's closed this week. How's disappointing?! Hopefully, my plates won't be too dry to trim next week.
