I don't think you are giving yourself enough credit!! lol! Even taking pottery class in high school, I think you have a talent showing!!!
It isnt easy to take nothing and make it into something like that. I play with my 4 year old and her play-doh all the time but when she wants me to make mermaids and all that good stuff....not as easy....i would have to concentrate too hard to even make a cupcake. lol! I will be watching for when you start selling
