After winding down a year of teaching,critiques, marking, administria and now just going through another interview process and orientation for a summer faculty position at OCAD U I've had a tough time learning to be a potter again. These bottles have taken me all week to finish. I finally put the tops on them and dunked them in our red clay slip. I love the look of pots best of all when they are wet. Wish I could fire them to look that way. Hey would they be my bottles without a lug/handle?
