I never thought I could. But I see other potters doing it every day! Where might this strange phenomenon be happening every day? At a production studio of course! I was recently hired on as a potter throwing for a family-run production pottery company called Deneen Pottery!
But with some dedication and hard work, some pots began making it out alive. These pots were not great by any means, but were encouraging for me to see as they were at least still standing.
This picture was taken just a few days ago. Finally I am feeling like there is some REAL progress being made. I can throw faster, better, and I am learning about how to listen to my body with posture, proper leg height, and other things I hadn’t normally thought too much about.
