Layout

i got the shelves half way up. I don’t want to go too high with them because kiddos will probably try to climb them. Way better for storing the chemical & glaze buckets.

I really can’t figure out the layout I want though. I have a heavy bag in the corner which takes up space… Maybe it should come down for the time being.

I was thinking of a layout sort of like a kitchen, where the main elements are in a triangular shape for efficiency. It doesn’t really matter though. It’ll transform as I figure out what needs to be where and every space and situation is unique.

  

When you go to the wheel…

… and forget everything. One tiny bit at a time. First was the best so not a total loss but man! Little by little until I knew nothing. And not in the good way where you are in the zone and just do it, more like my brain just farted. LoL! It’s a new wheel so I’ll be at it again and again until it does my bidding. I guess it’s best to step away for the night though. 

  

The Heart of Man

I had a very hard time letting this yunomi go up for sale. However to fund further projects I have to let some of them go. Its hard to convey how the vessel feels in your hands, how it is thrown a little thicker to accommodate hot tea, how big it is, how heavy. A picture is worth a thousand words but holding it in person is the final answer. And even that is subjective.

I want the pieces that I create to fit the owner and to fulfill their purpose. I’m so glad this one went to a repeat customer in Australia. I’ve talked with him several times and we share some of the same tastes and ideas about pottery. He even sent pictures when it arrived. It truly makes my day when I get pictures back! If it is being used and enjoyed then I am on the right path with my work.

The Heart of Man is truly at home. I hope he discovers the “secret” to the name during its use. 🙂
