Doing a line
A good friend of mine had a friend over for tea and served her in one of my yunomi’s with an undulated rim. Pardon the elitism of using the word yunomi to describe a cup the shape of a can of Coke. Now you get my reference to "doing a line".
Her friend was horrified that this apparent professional made work that looked like a beginners. My friend suggested that I am limiting my market by producing such work that is too hard for most to understand. So today I thought hmmmmmmm forget my pride but I got to put a new gas tank in the CRV and the Dentist sure dinged me yesterday. So I made some cups with a "so what" rim and just for the exercise put a straight line in the waist line. Beside it is a cup with a undulated rim and a wavvy waist line. For my money the wavvy line and the undulated rim is far more interesting, but then I'm not everyone. So I have a bet with my friend which cup will sell first. I'm usually not a betting person but I'm going to bet on that horse called " Choose Interesting".
That horse hasn't paid big money yet but it has kept me at the track for over 35 years.
