Thanks for popping in. Went to pottery for the morning. Haven’t been for a while. There’s so much going on, there haven’t been enough hours in the day, and my head hasn’t been in pottery space. So this morning I decided to JFDI. If you don’t you get out of the habit. And the longer you let it slide, the more difficult it is to get back in the groove, right? You get me. Also, there were a few things I had started but not finished…
So I decided to keep it simple and turn the few little things I threw last time I was there. They had been put in plastic bags but they were pretty dried out. That’s the thing with pottery; it’s all about timing. Leave anything too long and the clay goes bone dry – like dust. Then it’s too late to get back to workable. I wrapped the things in damp cloths when I got to the studio today, to help it a little, and although it was all a bit scratchy to turn,
I managed to salvage 4 little baby vases and tealight holders
I can feel Christmas presents coming on. Sometimes you just have to persevere. I think they’ll be fine. But the next batch I make I won’t leave for 3 weeks between throwing and turning!
So much to do, so many ideas, not enough hours in the day.
Love and hugs
