I have been doing ceramics/pottery for a few years. I started with an evening class once a week, but now just do my own thing and take my pieces to a local studio for firing. I am still a definite amateur and mostly make things up as I go along.

I really like geometric, angular forms and so this is what I make the most of. These are made using clay which has been wedged (kneaded to remove the air) and rolled out to the desired thickness. Shapes can then be cut out and joined together by scoring the edge of the clay and applying wet clay (a bit like glue). The angles required for this can be a bit tricky so I wrote a Blender script so I could easily create designs and made an adjustable mitre cutter to cut any angle.
