I just cleaned up the studio after using my new wheel for the first time. I’m loving the Shimpo!
It’s been 7 months since I’ve sat at a pottery wheel and I’m very pleased with how everything came back to me rather quickly. The laundry is working overtime with all the towels and filthy clothes from the splatter, but it was definately worth it. During those 7 months of wheel withdrawal, I made lists of all the forms and tricks I wanted to try when I got back at it, however, its amazing how that all went out the window as soon as I sat down. My hands just took over.
Sorry, I just tried adding an image of the first bowl I made, but the file is too large. I’ll try fixing that later, and by that I mean, I’ll be calling for technical assistance. Adam, are you there? heehee.
