Sorry about this. I know I already complained about not being able to charge enough for the time spent on making berry bowls. On the positive side, this drudgery with the berry bowls has gotten me thinking about making the stuff I really want to make.
I'm a functional potter. Well, put it this way, I make functional pottery. Some purely decorative items too, but mostly functional. And although I embrace the craft involved- a good fitting lid, a comfortable handle, I am also motivated by the art involved. I need to remind myself of this now and then to make sure I balance out the more mundane tasks and physical work with creative process.
See the nubs?
