The June crop of pots is quite a mixed bag of candy. Some pots turned out with great colourings, glaze pairings worked and didn’t work, some glazes held rough surprises in corners (reject!!!), some glazes didn’t drip as expected (sigh), some crawled (grahhh!)… ah WELL! There is a lot of food for thought from the outcome of these experiments.

Something I was thinking in the shower today: My goal with pottery is to enjoy the making of it, be in the moment, enjoy the spontanaeity of working with clay. Some days, the clay may want to move more, other days, it likes to be straight and proper – maybe this is expressive of my mood at the moment, and it is RIGHT that this shows in the work. The clay is ready to listen and be moved!
