Penguin Foot Pottery

birthday thangs.

Although the weather during Memorial Weekend was amazing, last weekend (actually two weekends ago now #latepost) took a turn for the worse when temps literally dropped like 30 degrees over night and giant rain clouds decided to hover over Chicago for pretty much 24 hours. This though, was NOT going to bring me down.

On Saturday night, I took an awesome pottery class at Penguin Foot Pottery with my friend Sandy (who got me this as a birthday present). Why was it so awesome you ask? Because anything that is BYOB is awesome in my book. The class was small so it was perfect if you wanted a little one on one attention from the teacher, but that didn’t really happen cause our teacher…let’s call him Dream Crusher, was pretty much no help. When I asked if I could make a jewelry dish he responded with, “You don’t want to make that shit.”

OH, okay.

He was very talented, don’t get me wrong, but he wasn’t the best “teacher” per-say. That’s okay though, cause I was going to make a jewelry dish with our without him and I did! Two in fact. Two abstract jewelry dishes. Suck it, Dream Crusher.

Check out highlights from my pottery adventure below:
