The addition of a wheel to the studio has been a big production booster. I love throwing, I used to not enjoy it at all, I was a diehard handbuilder, but after teaching throwing this past term, I felt the need to give it a little attention. I am thoroughly enjoying it. But I must say, the handbuilding has slacked off a bit, and now I have to play catch-up. I dropped some stuff off at the gallery yesterday, and will be heading off to Cheticamp to drop some next week. In the meantime, I will allow myself a day or two more of throwing exclusively, and then split time with handbuilding. Today I will throw mugs, then I am off to load a bisque at a friend's place.
I love my job.
