I am often thinking of where to go next, what needs developing, what’s been started and not finished, and what am I waiting on for next steps. I few months back I worked on tall forms, seeing how tall I could get out of a certain amount of clay. I created a twelve inch vase I love, but was a little heavy at 4 pounds of clay. After chatting with Lucy about it, I decided at some point to see if I could achieve the same height with less clay, say three or three and half pounds.
By the time I got the three and half pound pieces, I was too damn tired in my shoulder and blew the form while throwing. More attempts another day!
