Trio of nesting bowls

In order to make good pottery, you have to make A LOT of pottery.  Everyone has a number, i.e. the quantity of any given pot you need to make in order to make the pot that you want.  In the beginning, you have a lot of basic skills to practice: centering, opening, and pulling.  After the basics are accomplished, then you work on making your pottery distinctive.  I call it ‘finding your clay voice’.  This number seems to be infinity.  It is on-going and ever-changing.  As a non-artist, I was really surprised to find out that artists rework ideas and themes.  They don’t ‘just’ make their masterpiece.  I have hope!  Art can be made methodically through trials and with progressive changes.
