Rocky Hill Pottery was on schedule as one of our activities. We arrived and looked at the pottery in the shop. The owner of the studio then gave us a demo on how to use the clay and wheel. It was then our turn to put our clay on the potter’s wheel. We learned to center the clay, to open and create the floor of the pot, and to thin the walls to shape the form of the pot. Finally, we stretched the walls being careful not to stretch the pot too far. Our pots had to be fired and glazed, so we had them shipped to us.
