I made more bowls for Empty Bowls today and then mixed some of my leftover phoenix and craggy crunch clays together to get some swirls of color and different textures.
I am getting very comfortable in my potter's skin lately. While I am not ever going to quit my day job, I feel I have reached another milestone in my throwing skills. My confidence level is much higher than it's ever been and I am way more comfortable making most forms than I was just a few years ago. Don't get me wrong; I still have more than one lifetime of things to learn, but I am feeling pretty good about where I am right now.
It's all about joy...
...and the joy of the process.
