Slideshow: Budding potters spin clay into works of art

The dwarf in the German fairy tale “Rumpelstiltskin” saved a poor miller’s daughter with his impressive feat of spinning straw into gold.
Students in the pottery class at Baltimore Clayworks do some spinning of their own, by turning clay into teapots, cups, bowls and vases.
The modern day world is know fairy tale, we know. The potters' efforts may not reap any financial gain or save a damsel in distress, but are rewarding nonetheless. BmoreMedia Managing Photographer Steve Ruark captured students transforming clay into works of art at Baltimore Clayworks’ Mount Washington studio. See what students spun in the slideshow below.
Clayworks offers classes for novices and holds a studio for professional potters. It also contains a gallery that is currently running an exhibition featuring 100 teapots. You can also view "100 Teapots VI" online
