Pretend art and other things celebrating my weirdness, I mean uniqueness
Friday, July 27, 2007
I first slab-built this pot about two months ago at home just for the purpose of carving, finally got to carving it about a month ago, and now it is glazed and done. Pottery, just like gardening, is reminding me to be patient and not get too attached to pieces...Thinks might not come out as I expected, even crack...but actually this piece is surprisingly similar to what I imagined!

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
