It was a quiet Friday at the studio. I trimmed the thrown pieces from the past 2 days and thrown 8 in a new form. I have 8 more to make. The shelves are filled with drying vessels and the pile of empty clay boxes is taller but somehow the end seems still further away. The more I work on it and know the details going into the project the further the end appears.
Thankfully everything is drying well except one of the tall bottles I made in two parts. I knew it would happen when I forced the thin bottom piece to match the diameter of the thick top piece. It split horizontally half way around the seam line like a gaping mouth of a muppet.
