Making pots, should be packing pots
It's nearly 6 p.m. Friday and I have yet to wrap and pack the first pot to take to the Wellfleet show tomorrow. OK, so I'm putting off something for which I have very little affection. Packing the truck is one of my least favorite things about making pots. But I'll do it as soon as I finish this post.
Much of my time the past couple of days has been taken up by mugs, pouring bowls and plates. I was busy yesterday with throwing them, and then today with trimming feet on the bowls and adding handles to the mugs. And after Wellfleet I'll go back to making more.
But I thought I'd put a few photos on the blog: freshly thrown mug bodies, plugs of clay for pulling handles, then the finished mugs drying by the window along with some of the pouring bowls.
That's all for today. Onward to packing ...
