Three handles again

Here's a pot I forgot to post from this summer. The glaze ran on the bottom, so was disappointed at first (but what pot is perfect?). Still have a saki set from this summer on my shelf waiting to be glazed and am working on lots of things now. Stay tuned for bowls (one I can't post because it's a gift (Oh, I hope it turns out!)) and tumblers that have yet to be bisque-fired.

Am comtemplating the struggle between wanting to throw perfectly but still wanting it to look like it was made by human hands. As Naomi the "Queen of Glaze Combinations" stated, the potters' wheel is a machine, so that's another thing to ponder. Blah, blah, blah. Those are my deep personal thoughts and thanks for letting me share. Goodbye for now.
