From the Well-Obviously File...
...This is hard! Also, it takes much longer than just throwing mugs for sale or for an order. After attaching fifteen handles tonight I noticed that although the shapes and throwing marks are all differnet, the handles all have a sameness to them -- all pulled, same width, etc. So tomorrow I will think more about that, when I attach the handles to the mugs I threw today. Also I may use a different cut-off wire, maybe a stretched spring, to add another variable.
The good thing is, this exercise is already doing what it is intended to do, which is to make me more concious of the decisions I make about form.
85 to go. Plus some extras, for luck.
