like trying to hit a target with an arrow wearing a blindfold



(new teaset by Gary Rith)
It is true:  in pottery, I know what I want but getting there, hitting the bullseye?  Not exactly hit or miss, more guiding yourself down a path with your eyes closed,  and if you get where you want to be, you are pleasantly surprised!
Of course, all too often you fall off the path into a creek, right?  That is NOT where you want to be...
Anyway, you have seen me working on patterns of loops under glaze in 2014, and the other thing I am working on is a series of celadon pieces..just light greens.  Where do I go with this, what makes best use of a simple glaze, simple form, what is balanced, what is cohesive design?
This stuff stuff hit the mark :)
Have an awesome Tuesday!
