I did some some throwing today, starting with large serving bowls, then mugs; by the time I got to sugar and creamer sets my left wrist was feeling a little twinge. Luckily there's more than one way to make pots! These wonky little guys are slab built.
I like handbuilding as much as I like throwing, actually. It's slower and more contemplative, and can produce some engaging shapes. "Slower" is not always a plus, of course, but I am looking at the wrist-twinges as a blessing in disguise: they give me a reason to switch to my less-productive mode.
My friend Carolyn was diagnosed with inoperable cancer last year. She has been unable to work due to her illness - she owns her own hair salon. If you can help - any amount helps! - I hope you'll consider it. Click the photo to get to her GoFundMe page. Thanks.
