I can always make another one.

April 3, 2008

This simple phrase has taken me many years to finally embrace fully. I really think this notion has coloured my whole approach to life as well. In making pots, if you truly believe you can always make another one, then this takes the pressure off. It allows you to be freer and try things you might not attempt if you maintain the “precious” frame of mind. I think the very nature of production pottery lends itself to this approach as you are making multiples of things as opposed to spending weeks on a single piece. Just a different approach I guess, but very metaphoric for life.
