Hops and Pots
Monday I figured out that I still know how to toss clay at a wheel and get it to turn into something.
There is the familiarity of working in my own space. My wheel, my tools, mine, mine, mine. It's like being two. This is all mine and I am not sharing with anyone.
It felt so good to just be here and work.
I have been thinking about out how to be here and be back at the school. Maybe I can take long breaks..... be right back......
Hop on Pop.
They look great. He is mulling over how best to use them in his beer making. I'll be interested to see what unfolds. He has been making some really good beer over the last few years.
Thanks Joel for leading him back to something he really enjoys doing.
I am throwing some of those production pots. I was very aware of how much more it takes to fill the kiln when I am not throwing here as much as I use to. Mark is doing the largest share of filling the kiln. I need to figure out how I can use my days off from the school best to get my share done.
Fall is in the air.
Better get cracking on the pots for gift season.
That too is something to work out.
nothing is easy or quick here.
This time I am making some details notes. I forget some of the things I have done between loads. It occurs to me that not only do I need to write down what works, but I need to read what I write as well.
They are all waiting for the last step before heading over for sale.
Hope you are happy and well.
I have to get back over to the studio.
