Why I'm not at all ready for selling my pottery
On picture #1, the glaze turned out fine, but there's a significant problem...a pinhole in the bottom so it won't hold water. Might make a nice pencil holder. On picture #2, I had to learn that when I low-fire that particular clay it doesn't come out as dark as when it is high-fired. This is all the same color of clay, so I'm still experimenting. On picture #3, the mug does hold water. My husband claimed that one for himself.
Anyways, this hobby is all a big experiment and learning experience for right now. I'm still loving it! I just might sell to Calana, but for very low prices...

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
