Thanks, Gracie, for letting me post this! Here she is; my instructor showing off her talents. Picture #1: Two cylinders of clay put together. #2: Yes, it's a hairdryer. It helps dry the clay so it sets up faster and one doesn' have to wait as long. #3: Three pieces of clay and a whopping 16-1/2 inch high pot! Maybe I'll be able to do this in five years, huh?
