Its been a good day.

Its been a good day. I have started to make some progress with the throwing after such a long time off the wheel. Practice, practice is not all you need to bring to the wheel to complete a pot. Focus, focus and more focus. Getting back that feel of the clay in the fingers has been a good feeling today. Chasing up that ripple of clay from the bottom of the pot to the very top, like a mighty wave ebbing  on to the shore.” Feel the clay” a potter once told me! How true this is, you need to feel and go with the clay and stay focused on the task  at hand. So I am happy in the fact that I have started to get the feel for the clay back and started to make a few items to put up on my shelf.
