Throwing my first clay pot at the Figge
Patrick Swayze did NOT appear behind me to make my first time at a potter's wheel a romantic experience (like in the movie GHOST). Instead, I gleefully giggled as my clay creation came alive. The wheel moved a lot faster than expected. "Clay water" flew all over my clothes. My hopes of a picture perfect pot dissolved but I didn't care. I was in artist mode--there are no mistakes!
