Every pot is a learning experience and some are more instructional than others. I put these two pieces together and messed with the resulting pot for quite a while. It went through many changes until I completely hated what it had become.
One of the biggest lessons to learn is when to walk away from a pot. That moment when you decide you hate it, you're frustrated, (and most importantly) you can't fix it.
- Every pot is not precious.
- Every pot is not going to be the last one.
- Clay is very reusable.
- Sometimes it's better to put back in the bag and move on to something else.
I did and was rewarded with a couple of nice pots.
