Me and CQ were so nervous about returning to class tonight. On top of missing the last two classes, we were more than half hour late for tonight's class.
But we were determined to be brave and face the music.
When we got to class, teacher was busy helping the "throwers" so we quietly sneaked in. CQ went to her unfinished dragon, and I went to look for my plate.
My plate was on my shelf right where I had left it. I quickly took it out of the plastic bag which I had covering it and pushed at the clay with my finger. Lo and behold . . . it separated from the glass beneath it really easily. I was soooo happy, I did a little dance. Hoo hoo!!
I turned to see how CQ was doing and saw that she was wetting down her dragon.
She looked as if she was spraying in earnest, but I knew that what she really wanted to do was to throw the whole piece into the clay-heaven bucket.
It was about then that teacher noticed us and said something like, "Why, hi girls!" Whew!!
Here's Gail's second dragon.
This is Dean.
CQ decided to make a bowl tonight while her dragon was still moisturizing.
This is the contraption that we use to flatten our clay.
Here's teacher helping CQ mold her clay onto a bowl.
CQ puts on the final touches.
Here's my dragon plate! Cute hah!
