Compound Pottery

After the fullness of the holiday season, I enjoy the contemplative quiet of January which is why I have only just fired my first kiln load of the year.  And although I have been working in the studio, it has been at a much slower pace.  Last year, I worked steadily through the year and the end result was that I made over 300 mugs which is a bit overwhelming to think about but is also the magic of compound pottery.  A few pots made regularly result in a large accumulation of pots over time.
