I do so love that little squared pot I brought back from The Netherlands. I was talking to Doug about it and about never really having proper play time as I tend to worry about making things that I can sell, and that I know sell relatively well and I get a lot of repeat orders for things. Of course that is great, it means people like it but it means I sometimes feel like I get a bit stuck in a particular way of doing things. I’m always aware that I don’t want to not move on and do new things but when you are trying to make a living there has to be that balance. Doug said I should make six of my version of the square pot today as a start. I took it as a challenge and so I did it. Thanks Doug. I tried to use really soft clay because my pot looks very soft, I think if I was trying to copy that pot exactly then mine are too neat and tidied up but then maybe that’s my way of doing it. One of these days I might learn to be comfortable with the way that I do things and not always be thinking, as is my want, oh I wish I could draw like so and so or oh I wish I could throw like such a body.
