My final pottery class was last week. Not the last forever – I hope. I’ve been too uninspired to get the most out of it and felt it best to take a break now before I became too frustrated.
While I made little progress with my throwing, I have honed in on a few glaze combinations that really work for me. Hopefully the same glazes will be available when I return to class. Otherwise, this exercise was for naught.
I went through the pictures I posted on Flickr, looking for the best of the best. Surprisingly, they all come from this past year. So while I’ve failed to progress my throwing skills, I seemed to have enhanced my glazing eye. It’s a difficult thing to discern when you’re in the trenches, so I’ll take that as a victory.
Last week I was sick and tired of clay. Looking back at this pics, I wish I was going back today. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, or so I’m told.
