Cat Loves to Make Hand-Thrown Pawttery

Sophia Renata is a professional potter in Chicago. She also has two cats, Momo and June. Momo was fascinated by Sophia's pottery wheel, and wanted to explore how it worked.

So Sophia let him try it out on his own, and he loves shaping his own pots! And vases and bowls, too. Momo hasn't quite got the hang of throwing the clay, but he gives the shaping of it his undivided attention.

He is learning to apply glaze, too!

This is Momo's hobby. June is not at all interested.

This one he not only shapes, but applies his distinctive claw marks.

See more of Momo at work at TikTok and Instagram. Sophia offered Momo's works up for sale, but they sold out immediately. More will be available as he completes them. -via Boing Boing
