Two weeks ago, Troy took a half day off work to participate in Friday Art Day. We had a tub of air dry clay stowed away, so Troy taught the girls the basics of clay pottery. They wedged and wedged, over and over until the clay was free of bubbles. Then they learned the coiling technique and started working on their bowls. Regardless of the outcome, their scoring and welding techniques were actually pretty good for their first time.

Rinoa rolled ...

and shaped her clay into a pot.

And so did Mica.

But alas, the joy of pottery. We blame the air dry clay. They’re not too discouraged though. They’re willing to try again next time. Learn from mistakes. That’s what matters.
