the colour factory

this is a delightful place where you can spend several hours at the pottery wheel or even try your hand at ceramic painting.

i discovered that working on the wheel was amazingly soothing. there is a certain connection that you feel as you coax and cajole the wet clay into something so beautiful.

this was our drill every weekend for several weeks. we would paint/make a pot one weekend & when we went to pick it up (glazing & firing in the kiln takes 4-5 days) we would do some more.
