I signed up for a pottery class, once. It was a free class offered when I was a student at FAMU. The class was at Florida State. I went to the orientation. While I was smitten with the idea of making my own pottery, I guess I realized in order to make something that would even pass for pottery, it was going to take more time/patience/commitment/energy than I had . End of pottery career. But I am absolutely in love with hand-made ceramics and I love with artist Shevon Gant's gorgeous work. I am having having visions of having my friends over and serving organic herbal tea out of one of these gorgeous teapots. Her work is available here .
