Every once in a while I get frustrated over something in the process of my projects. Occasionally, I get anxious about things I have no control over…but you know what? I find solace and satisfaction in watching something like this:
Being a potter I am aware of the craft that goes into making things on a potter’s wheel and find the experience to be relaxing. I am happiest when I can actually get my hands into my clay and just sit and throw different forms, even if only for practice.
Some of the elements incorporated in making the pots in this video are deceptively easy but can be accomplished with sufficient practice and understanding of the medium being worked with. I love making things in clay even if it ends up back in the slop bucket afterwards.
Enjoy watching these craftspeople make their amazing objects.
