Cup #360 -Wheel Thrown Cup with Ball Feet

Tammy’s TOP 10 of 2011: What I’ve learned this year…

#5 Disasters Can Be Delightful!
Never give up hope! There is a side of me that really enjoys making something out of a possible nothing. I have to say that some of my most favorite cups are the ones I should have (at some point) thrown into the recycle bin! Working with these cups some how made me feel more free to create…and that’s what it’s all about for me!

#6 Repetition is a GOOD thing!
Knowing thyself! Against my nature of disliking anything monotonous,I chose to throw 365 different cups. In retrospect, it would have been easier if I had just decided to repeat the same cup over and over. I would probably have become more proficient more quickly, and quite possibly even progressed farther than I have come today by doing so. The challenge I was also trying to conquer was maintaining momentum for 365 Days. I’m glad I chose the path I did, I MADE IT TO THE END, yet after the project is over I’ll probably be making more sets and practicing duplication, as I honestly believe this would be much more efficient road to progress!

5 more cups to go!!! And TONS of glazing to do!!!

Warm wishes for the day!
