One way to delay is to make a list.
Eventually though, I weigh up some balls o’ clay and sit myself down at the wheel. It was a perfect autumn day and the view and the gentle breeze were delightful. 2 and 1/4 lb. bread plates are an easy warm-up and I made 30 this afternoon. Some of my favorite pots from the last firing were these simple pots with old fashioned slip combing.
There was a time (about 20 years ago) that I altered the shape of lots of my wheel thrown pots. I got over it and concluded that it was too much about cleverness for me and lacked the simplicity that I strive for. But these little oval pots continue to amuse me, and I plan on making a bunch.
