Funky crenulated pot
This was fun. I knew it was off-center and so just did "whatever" to it and used low-fire glaze. When I brought it home, my husband reminded me it was crenulated (one of the new words I learned in December--see here).
Speaking of words, here are some words rarely used in my vocabulary:
--Succint --Nascent --Sexton --Fortnight
You may use them in a sentence in the comment section for fun if you'd like. The first two are courtesy of Paul Hill. The last two are courtesy of Year of Wonders, the book I'm reading that takes place in 1666.
Visit Yosemite or, oh heck, visit every national park in the U.S.
A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
