I have found a great new hobby and entered the world of hand made pottery. This blog is to show my work from the beginning. I hope to make a piece a day, hence, Pottery 365.

August 13, Day Zero
My first attempt at making a piece of pottery was a dismal failure. I wanted to make a free form basket. I rolled out the clay and tried to add texture with a doily. The problem was the edge of the doily had 2 layers and when rolled into the clay, the edges became too thin. As it dried it began to crack badly so I decided to wad up the clay and begin again the next day.
