Old habits die hard
Ever since the beginning of the year, I've been trying to essentially "relearn" how to throw on the wheel. With lots of reluctance, I have changed the direction of the wheel from what I first learned 14 years ago and am trying to get the proper techniques down that my instructors use. When I have the wheel going the other way, they can't help me much and not every wheel goes "backwards". I thought I just learned how to do it left-handed before. Anyways, if I get this down, I should be able to throw bigger and better. It's frustrating, but there's something about clay that is soothing to me. I still call it circular therapy.
