After 12 weeks of pottery, I am finally beginning to form a more cohesive idea of how my personal aesthetic can be conveyed through ceramics. And because most of the past 12 weeks were spent learning the basics of form and technique, the bulk of the stuff I've made aren't really all that pretty. A couple days back, B and I assembled all the ceramics we'd created and started delegating which ones we were keeping, giving to friends, and throwing out. And I planned to throw out quite a lot.
I promise I'll be writing a longer post on my pottery experience and show you more of my creations soon. Today, I wanted to share a quick project that took all of 20 minutes and allowed me to give life to those ceramics I thought of throwing out.
These early bowls were either too small to hold anything, had sharp lips, too thick walls, very heavy floors, or the glazing turned out all meh. But I loved their shapes and thought maybe there was a way I could enjoy that without noticing all their flaws. Then it hit me-- it was really as simple as putting a succulent in each one.
And now I have some pretty succulents looking up at me while I'm working in the kitchen!
