I started a soda-firing class last night. The instructor threw a serving bowl in about 1 minute. I'm serious. I looked away, I looked back and he was done.
I've got a long way to go. I think I'm going to learn bunches. I haven't taken a class in years and years. I was really just in it for the soda-firing, but what a sight it was to see a really, really good potter throw.
