this is why I am a potter
(tea or coffee pot by Gary Rith)
You feel like you have an idea of what you want to do, but making it is like blind folding your eyes and shooting at a target--you'll know later if you got it, otherwise you are just messing around in the dark. I am an experimental potter, and some ideas I have work out better than others. But I really like bright and colorful and fun, and lately have esp. wanted to make things very dynamic too.
Some, like this gorgeous little pot, are right on--a reason to get up in the morning, a reason for living, better than chocolate: a really wonderful piece (if I may say so myself).
