My son's girlfriend ( who by the way is a very talented artist) and I went to Hearts of Clay Pottery in Columbus, NC a few weeks ago and painted pottery there. It was soooo fun and relaxing. This is the plate that I painted. She painted coasters (wish I had a pic). It was a very nice day together as we ate lunch, painted the pottery, and went thrift shopping. I will be going back to paint again in a few weeks with some very special friends of mine, as we have planned lunch and pottery time together.
