Today I made some bowls in preparation for my class tomorrow at Sheridan where we will be making some 5 lb bowls. Well they started out to be bowls and they grew a thrown foot and a pulled and thrown handle. The other part of my mind was thinking about a great group from the Hamilton Potters Guild(now 400 members strong) I am mentoring for the next year on wood firing and I was thinking about surface and adding ledges, edges and bits and pieces to grab a hold of the fly ash. A visiting customer asked where is the potter they visited last summer that used to make the pots for the showroom. I said he died this summer! They looked at me, apologized, took no pictures and left me in peace.
