I found that it's really hard to shape the clay in the bowl when I was at my pottery class.

I find it hard to pinpoint the meaning of the bolded part. Does it mean "to sculpt the clay in the bowl which is specially made for pottery class?" Thanks.

Hi,

I found that it's really hard to shape the clay in the bowl when I was at my pottery class.

I find it hard to pinpoint the meaning of the bolded part. Does it mean "to sculpt the clay in the bowl which is specially made for pottery class?" It seems to mean that, but it sounds like an odd meaning to me.

I wonder if the idea is to use the clay to make a bowl, ie shape the clay into a bowl. That seems like a much more likely thing to do in a pottery class.

Thanks, Clive.

Your version makes more sense to me.
