for a day.
Inspiration has been sparse, but yesterday was my first day back in the studio making work since September. Truthfully, I was a little concerned that I had forgotten what to do or that the first attempts would be disasters.
To my pleasant surprise, my muscles had retained their memory. I started simple with a half dozen bowls. I then followed up with a few squircle plates – my not quite square not quite round plates.
Maybe I was honoring my return to the wheel, but my alteration du jour was the spiral. Not unlike the trees below, each bowl is altered with a spiral pattern on its exterior, which in the more successful cases, is gently revealed in the interior as well. I’ll post pics once the pots are trimmed. In the meantime, here is some spiral inspiration.
