Making Pottery

Pottery-making is a traditional Okinawan craft (isn't a traditional craft of every culture?).  I was scheduled to go to bull fighting a couple weeks ago as a 6-months-late birthday present from Mariko, but couldn't go because of canceled boats, so when she asked me what I wanted to do as a replacement I blurted out "make pottery!"

 [I kinda sucked at it, though.  I was supposed to be making the wall of this bowl much thinner, but eventually the guy gave up and said this would be fine.]

Sorry there's no picture of the final product.  It looks like a bowl.  I'll get it back in a few weeks.
