I blog, I paint, I do DIYs and I do pottery!
Blogging, paintings, and DIYs don't have any one specific space,
I use my entire little apartment to do do these.
But for pottery/ceramics, I go to Sunnyvale Community Center every Wednesday.
It will be complete one year since I am doing pottery there,
but seems as if I am there since many years.
The people, the instructor, the ambiance, the views, the facilities,
I love everything about my Pottery Zone.
So today I thought to share my weekly work zone with my blogger friends!
Recently I read somewhere "clay is the way", and this turned out to be true for me. I fell in love with the material. Similarly, I love the Pottery Studio where I work with clay. I am not an early riser, but become one only on Wednesdays! Come with me on the tour of my Pottery Zone!

we even have a small Microwave, a coffee maker and a tiny fridge

after giving clay it's shape, we keep our creations on these shelves to dry for couple of days.
since we go once a week, so they dry over the week
the next week, we put the products on the Greenware Shelf for their first Bisque Firing
(as shown below)
