The Invisible Man

After a 6 week marathon I'm getting my life back slowly. All the things that are important to me I now have some time for. Morning email, coffee, run in White's Woods, eating healthier food,  my pots and now I'm back fixing up the rabbit warren inside and out. There is also some time left at the end of the day to read and I'm drawing again.  All these things are important to the balance of life. In the past year I've been away far too much breathing out and not taking the time to  breathe in .
I'm currently reading a book on my least of all favourite clays- porcelain. I'm reading The White Road by Eddie de Waal. I like calling Edmund -Eddie. It suits my pool hall sense of humour. I should have stuck with Anthony. It has such pompous arrogance to it I might get higher prices for my pots.
This one statement  in the book has stuck with me all day- "Why stand out when you can disappear?"
Down in the studio today I made 4 rolls with a low rider style lid. I don't like lids that stick way up in the air. Who makes their mac and cheese to pile up like a mountain in the middle of the casserole? So when I was thinking about Eddie's statement I thought gee why not put 6 different handle placements on these 6 thrown and cut plates I just made. What if I like one placement better than the others? I do like one better than the others BTW. Is this how you arrive at being different by sketching with clay? I was a production studio potter for so long it would be easy for me to slip back into making 100 similar objects. Don't want to!!!
I sat at a dinner recently with a potter who said _Tony Clennell the guy that makes pots nobody buys! Ha he's The Invisible Man not me.

RIP Mohammed Ali- You were the greatest athlete of my time. To quote him " The man who has no imagination has no wings."

In case you're taking a poll, I like the center right plate with the two diagonally opposed handles.If you are taking a pole, bring bait.

3 years and a bit later. This just popped up on Pintrest (my favourite online time-sucker, btw). I like the top right. I know, it’s the safe bet, but that’s the kind of day it is today. Cool, misty outside. Safe, warm inside my studio..

Love the contrast between the form and the wee lugs.

I searched on Google for information about a crypto asset brokerage firm and the top result was a sponsored link leading to a website with the web address mantao . network. Upon entering the website and clicking within the page, the website attempted to connect my crypto wallet and I was naive to approve the request to connect. I had 2.5 BTC which I had saved for some time and my plan was to make profits through a good brokerage organization and within seconds of approving the request, they were all drained. I confirmed again through the mobile application and for sure my balance was 0. I panicked and immediately reached out to my workmate who also deals crypto, explained what happened to me. He took it lightly and told me not to worry since he knew a guy who helps in such phishing attacks. He gave me this email WEB @ BAILIFFCONTRACTOR . NET and told me to explain the events and to attach the malicious sponsored link. The guy I talked to immediately noticed that the link was run by an imposter purporting to be manta . network, which is actually a legit site. After a few hours, he applied his knowledge and reversed my btc to my wallet. His name is WEB BAILIFF CONTRACTOR and his email address is web @ bailiffcontractor . net.

This month was such a blessing starting it with a 756 credit score, Experian. thecybergoat(@)techie .com credit patch up crew is much recommended for this raise. I needed some missing payments and bills fixed up and they got me from the 450s range. I needed to get a loan ASAP too. I would highly ask anybody to write them up really; here's their website and whatsapp,
and +1(512) 299-1522. It took less than a week and they are very affordable I might add!
