However in this case it's a soup crock. A batch of bowls that were supposed to be green, and due to a glaze mishap came out of the kiln like this. Now I do realize that this is a wonderful shade of blue. Mainly because it took me quite a lot of research and time to create it. It was just that this piece was meant to be green, but I somehow mislabeled two types of glaze.... uggghhhh!
Lesson learned. I will pay closer attention to labeling my buckets. After a few face palms and a freshly deflated ego, I can laugh at myself and get back to work.
Now let's talk about handles!
First I should admit that they are not my favorite. Handles are just so time consuming, and personally I don't think I am very good at making them. Which in all honesty means I should be making a lot more of them. Making a large quantity of a certain object seems to help the quality, ya know, after the first hundred or so.
So for these past few weeks I have been adamantly pushing through handle boredom. Even if I haven't quite hit the hundred mark, I still have made more soup crocks (i'm assuming) than the average person. That has to be a plus right? I"m hoping that 'better' is around the corner, but I would be fine settling for being just 'okay' at making handles. Nobody really likes people who are good at everything anyway.
(I feel like my go-getter attitude vanished somewhere in that last paragraph).
Honestly as long as these last two batches turn out the lovely shade of green they were intended to be, I will be beyond happy.
