Carving my place

When we first moved into Sun City I joined everything art/craft with the intention of culling the chafe and keeping the grain but it turns out, all of it was grain to me, I even added the writers guild to my assortment of interest and found it to fit me perfectly.

I am finally getting into pottery seriously and am moving in different directions trying to find my new slower paced more thoughtful style, but I am not there yet.

My new friends in the pottery studio amaze me with their creativity, meticulous precision, persistence and thirst for knowledge.

I am home now, even in the pottery studio doing my work, making suggestions for improvement, passing on help I receive from Clayart, sharing whatever knowledge I have and even giving mini workshops on handling glaze, carving clay and, amazingly, even throwing on the wheel.
