Pretend art and other things celebrating my weirdness, I mean uniqueness

It's supposed to be a llama...
These two pieces were thrown when I was still in my "alter it/not round" mode in November, carried over from when I made the saki set. The first one is triangular, and the second one is flattened on two sides. I am very pleased with how the glaze turned out on the second one, since I used the SB red clay and had no idea how it would look. I am planning on getting a cork for it and putting some type of decadent spirit in it...maybe amaretto, as I have baked with it before and haven't tried saki yet.
I think I am getting out of my little pottery rut I thought I was in and threw my first spout on Wednesday. It was very fun!

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
