I’ve been working hard in the studio these past month or so getting through the bumps and kinks of making functional pottery. These are a few of the first mugs and beakers that made it through the test firings. There are so many steps and little nuances of making pottery that I have forgotten about over the years. I haven’t thrown multiple wares on the wheel for longer than I thought! Teaching throwing a mug here and there or making sculpture isn’t quite the same as throwing matching multiples. Even through all my training in ceramics, making a line of dinnerware has a learning curve of it’s own. A wonderful learning experience. These new skills will prove some fantastic creations in the months to come! Just like riding a bike.
