It has been almost 12 years since I’ve thrown clay on the potter’s wheel. Yes, do the math, I’m old. Suffice it to say, even if throwing on the wheel is like riding a bike, I’m definitely a bit rusty. I have been wanting to throw on the wheel again for awhile now, and finally signed up for a pottery class recently. My first class is next week and I’m beyond excited! There are so many things I’d like to make. Some practical, some not so much. Lol. In my search to find inspiration, here are some things I’ve found that I think are adorable!

I love love LOVE Whitney Smith ‘s stuff:

I love this rainbow idea:

Olive Oil Bottle at Dean & Deluca

The difficulty I see here is building the narrow mouth of the bottle.  I’m excited to give it a shot.  :)

I like this unique shape:
