This weekend our family went up to Penland school of crafts that they opened to the public! We learned how to throw pottery, I use the term "throw pottery" loosely, as the instructors made it look so EASY! But what fun! Looking at our daughter, she so intently is working on a mug for her Dad! It came out beautiful, just a bit heavy to pick up! Which acutually is good, this is one mug he won't,er, I mean he can't break! Truly , one of a kind!!!!
