One of the pottery blogs I read gave out an assignment which I was anxious to try. It's nice to have a little push every now and again to try new things. The assignment was to make 12-50 of the same pot (mug, bowl, vase, etc.) but have each one of them different than the others.
I loved doing this! So fun to try. I found that I need to do this again. Now these mugs are not finished, they're not even all the way dry. Some mugs I love, others I like and some I'd be happy to throw away - but I'm not going to. I'm going to fire all of these and then experiment with glazes. I almost don't want to do anything with them, I love having them on the counter looking at me. They feel so hopeful to me.
