DONT SHOOT THE POTTER......))))))

Post  Savvas P. on Wed Apr 16, 2014 6:18 pm

After having a chat with my friend Vasos Dimitriou,a well known ceramic and potting artist in the Cyprus community,i decided to take some lessons with him on pot making.We formed a little workshop with some friends and we made some lessons with him..the following pictures are the results of our first 2 workshops....

I wasnt very sure of the colours and Vasos didnt want to interfere very much with what i did.I feel as if the colours are not so right,not even the pots you might say,but i am sure that with time everything will get much better....The following are the final result.....and still more coming...

Excellent  Smile .
I'd be very happy if they were my first attempt at making pots.
