Prep Work

I’m on the last stretch of prep work for the provincial Craft & Gift Wholesale Show this weekend. I’m looking forward to seeing familiar faces (and a few new ones).

It’s a surprisingly introspective process. Someone always asks, “What’s new this year?” and it makes me reflect on all the changes my work has gone through in the previous year… I’ve experimented with glaze chemistry, and landed on colour/texture combos I’m very happy with. I’ve changed the way I make handles. I’ve gotten better at throwing big teapots. I’ve really dialed in the proportions between body size, handle width, and handle thickness. I’ve refined my feet, and then refined them again a few months later. I’ve changed the way I draw my flowers.

A lot’s new, basically.
