Pretend art and other things celebrating my weirdness, I mean uniqueness
Sunday, August 19, 2007
Brought these bowls home last Saturday, but didn't get around to taking pictures until recently...obviously, some little white fluffy dog wanted in the picture, so I posted the one bowl three times. These were waiting for me while I was on vacation, and I didn't know if they turned out or not. This hobby requires a lot of patience as does gardening.
Don't know if this is boring to see my pottery on this blog, but guess it's kind of like a journal for me. The pictures can also be deceiving and only I know where the flaws lie. Anyways, I'm anxious to see if the ones I glazed last week turned out and have to wait until Monday to pick them up. One of my instructors says there are 641 ways to ruin a pot, and more than one of them is glazing...too thick, too thin, etc.

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
