ceramicy goodness

After a 3 or so year break I have tackled my fear of the ceramics wheel and I have jumped back on .
The clay in Korea is quite different and also the technique of using the wheel but I popped out very traditional looking vase and cup (with a lot of help of course). Also, I painted on glaze before the first firing - so that technique must be different also.
Anyway, my lesson was entirely translated and I'm sure I bored my Korean friend Stella with getting her to ask a million questions about clay and glazes and I don't think I got the complete answers wanted to know but this trip has definitely got my mind ticking about some things I can make. I'll see how my trials turn out when I get them back from the kiln...
