The picture changes from what I had in my mind to the real thing. If you've worked with clay you are aware that unlike painting on canvas, to use an example, what you see is not what you get. The firing process changes everything. So the wait to see what comes out the the kiln is fraught with anticipation and sometimes apprehension especially when new glazes or new combinations of old glazes are given a try-out. Now I can take what I've learned from here to the next forms I make. Assembly is still to come, and I have a couple ideas as to how that will happen.
