We picked up a potter's wheel! Whoo Hoo! We cannot find a reference to this exact wheel on the Internet, so we figure it's unique (at the very least). It's old, we can truly figure that out. And the bottom is made of cast iron! It's made by Amaco, American Clay Co. and it's number is simply 4! So of course, her name is FOUR. Paul hooked it all up for me, and after some instruction and prodding ... and cajoling ...
I made this sweet little dish! We laughed and giggled and even got to throw our heads back a couple of times. Patti Connor Greene gave us a "throwing lesson" yesterday in pottery class, so Paul kind of had a clue, albeit an electric wheel he worked on. It's going to take me a LOT longer to figure it all out. And because FOUR is powered by my own leg power, it's kind of like patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time. But hey, I'm a [retired] dancer. We learn this one thing better than any other ... Practice makes Perfect! It's a wonderfully tactile thing to do! I can't wait to get out of my pajamas and get out there to throw some this morning!
And this man finally got his VESPA! Paul has wanted one of these scooters since I've known him. He finally got one. He will be 50 this October. Happy Birthday, sweet man!
He just could not quit grinning - Cheshire cat style!
It is a cute little thing, huh? I believe it's a 1966. Made in Italy. In great condition and made the man I love really happy. What's better than that!?!
Happy weekend dear friends.
Blessings to you all!
