Today, when my 2nd period left for lunch, I decided to take a break. So I put a sign on the door saying "Sorry, I'm in a meeting", turned out the lights, and went down the hall to my studio room. I decided it was time to reacquaint myself with my wheel. I broke out a bag of a nice brown earthenware that someone donated, and spent the next hour and a half wedging and throwing. I will trim them tomorrow at lunch, and try and figure out what I want to do for decoration.
The afternoon went by smoothly, and with no irritation. I was actually relaxed, and cracking jokes with the last class of the day. OMG it felt good to get back on the wheel again!
It's only five medium bowls, but hey - it's a start! I just realized that I haven't thrown anything in three months. Now wonder I was feeling so ... crazy!
