4 Cats

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/disagree/

No, we don’t have 4 Cats now.  Last night, friend Judy invited me, as well as friends Trish and Suzanne, to 4Cats to … wait for it … make bowls!


4Cats looks like a fun place to get really messy (and artistic)




Here are a few before’s of the wheel and accessories – before they were completely covered in splattered mud and water.



And here is the first lump of clay I worked with.  Before slapping vigourously on the table…


And after.


I tried in vain to make a bowl out of this sucker, but eventually had only enough clay left for a thimble, so started again.

Sadly, I couldn’t take pictures during the experience (not without drowning my phone in wet clay), but I should have taken a picture of the complete MESS left behind.  Alas, I did not, so you’ll have to make due with a picture of my creation, “Man’s inhumanity to man” – my first piece of thrown art, which will soon be fired and glazed so I can present it to the world.


I’m exhausted now!

  1. Not as easy as they made it look in Ghost, huh? 😃

  2. Looks like you had a lot of fun. 🙂

  3. It’s the experience that counts. Memories are all about the experience.

  4. How exciting! It looks like a lot of fun to me. Making pottery is something that I would love to learn how to do. Does it involve strong smells? I have COPD and chemically, strong smells make it hard to breathe.

    I have family roots in pottery making. Some of my daddy’s people in the 1800s were pottery makers in Edgefield, South Carolina. Allen Gunter is one name that I can remember at the moment. They moved to Northeast GA and were pioneers in the alkaline glaze technique. As I understand it, theirs was mainly utilitarian pottery, not art pottery, though some may have created some art pieces along the way.

    I want to do both! I hope that you’ll make lots of posts about your clay working experiences. 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

    • It was fun. Not sure if I’ll do it again or not – I’ve never considered myself talented in this way at all. As for smells, the only smell I remember is earthy clay – no chemicals at all! I say go forth and pot 🙂 Have a great weekend too!!
