pitchers: career choices involving baseballs and clay

When I was ten my friends and I played baseball night and day.  Then I pestered my father to play baseball when the other kids had dinner.  I had a (for a ten year old, on my block) good eye, and liked to pitch... I imagined being a pitcher one day... fast forward, and that impulse came up against a far BIGGER dream...of making pitchers!  I love pitchers and love clay, baseball never had a chance ;)

Am I ever glad you did the pitchers in clay...and pictures of them too. The finger helped bring things into scale...though I'm pretty sure the middle pic shows much bigger pitchers!

Those are incredibly sweet.

Probably easier on your elbows, too!
