A Beginner's Guide to Throwing Pottery

Step one: Wedge up a small ball of clay, but do it badly.
Step two: Don't realize this until it's on the wheel already. Get up, re-wedge it.
Step three: Put it back on the wheel and take ages to get it centered.
Step four: Spend about half an hour trying to get some height out of it once the floor is made.
Step five: Give up at just shy of the six inches you need to get for class, because it's a cute shape and it'll collapse if you go any higher.

That's my Tuesday and Thursday nights. o_o
