Just looking around my studio at the high shelves where I've placed some pots from different eras. This was a perfume bottle turned into a ewer. The spout wasn't balanced well in terms of the whole shape. so it stayed here. There was still enough about the piece that I liked not to trash it. Having old pots around me reminds me of where I have been. And where I am. Working with clay is a journey. Sometimes I have something to say and sometimes the clay has something to say. Respect. Respect respect to all my fellow potters who make the choice everyday to work with this fascinating basic material and make our world more beautiful or more interesting. Whether you beautify surroundings or question what exists through and by your craft, I admire each one of you and am grateful to be counted in your company. #humbled #potterycommunity #corisandlerpottery
