Guelph Pottery Festival - The Five Pound Flower Challenge

I spent this past weekend in Guelph at the Arboretum for the Pottery and Sculpture Festival. It was great to reconnect with friends in the ceramics community that I only see at these types of events. Organized by Bunny Safari, this event included the Pottery Olympics featuring events such as the tallest 5lb cylinder, longest pulled handle, most voluptuous pot thrown blindfolded with prizes donated by Tucker's Pottery Supplies. I couldn't get anyone to do a hand-building challenge with me, so one of the potters challenged me to make a 5lb flower out of paper clay. And here it is. I have also just joined the 2nd Canadian Book Challenge Eh! You can follow my progress and my reads on this blog.

Hey that's quite a great flower even if it is on the hefty side.

Thanks for joining the Challenge!
