Pretend art and other things celebrating my weirdness, I mean uniqueness
Sunday, September 23, 2007
Above are some of my pieces waiting to be bisque fired (first firing without glaze). Am still waiting on a couple of the pieces that I glazed and are in the kiln now.
Below are some of the finished pieces. A couple of them turned out the way I expected, and others I'm learning to like. That's what this hobby is all about, though--sometimes frustrating, sometimes relaxing, sometimes rewarding.--always requiring a lot of patience.
Checked out some ceramic/pottery books while my computer was in the shop, and now I have a lot of ideas running through my head. Seems like I can't produce fast enough to try them out. I'm still going to class only two days a week, and our session ends on November 17th.

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
