It’s the first day of the new session at the Art Center – now known to my family as “my new second home”. I can’t wait to see what this new pottery session will bring. I’ve decided that I’d like to make a couple of big (think holding with both hands) coffee cups, all different, but with matching glazes to tie them together. Actually, this project is two fold, I want the cups and I need to practice uniformity in certain projects and more than anything, get better at making handles. For some reason, I’m apparently handle challenged, just can’t seem to “get” them. They always turn out wonky, won’t stay on, droop, are crooked, are too big or too small. So, I guess you could say that my goal for this semester is handles.
