Pint and Pottery

First try today at “Pint and Pottery” at the Ten Sleep Brewery.

It’s the chance to decorate a pre-thrown vase with various glazes.  I’ve never done anything like this before… but after some basic instructions from our local art teacher (who’s known for his Raku pottery), I was ready to try!

First, I used a tape to block out areas on the vase.
