  1. So far my best day was back in July when I made 180 coffee mugs in 8 and a half hours. However in general a good day for me is when I learn how to make a new shape and can throw it in under 2 minutes by the end of the day.
  2. What's your Mug?

    I don't usually use a mug but this one is my fall back from work
  3. Me and some other potters at my work have an audio book club. we all have an audible and share books with each other. I just recently finished Stephen King's IT, both Jurassic Park books, and The Demon Cycle series. Right now I'm listening to The Magicians books. Otherwise sometimes I listen to my music playlist.
  4. I'm regretting my financial decisions from a few years back when I was fresh out of high school. Now I'm dealing with my mistakes and it has pushed back my dream of buying a house and having a studio to create my art. I guess production pottery will have to hold me over till then.
  5. Random Collection of Work

    Just a bunch of things I have done in my 2 years
  6. I'm sure most people here have been called talented before by those around you so I was wondering if you feel like your hard work isn't recognized because people people attribute it to a natural gift? I understand that people don't mean it that way but I personally would rather be told that I am skilled in what I do because it has taken me years of hard work to get to where I am. I also feel that by using the word talent people are making these skills seem like something you have to born good at in order to do it. When my work is hiring I tell people I know and they say things like, "I'm not talented like you" or "I'm not artistic enough" and it drives me nuts because people don't seem to connect pottery with a skill that can be learned. This is just a subject that rolls around my head while I lay down at night and I feel that it was time to get other people's opinions, thanks!
  7. Community Challenge #9

    Really hoping to see something krampus related!
  8. It's all about the shape of the logo and the amount of pressure you use.
  9. Your Favorite Pottery Videos?

    Any video where the person destroys what they made at the end. If I were a teacher I would have my students break their first 5 projects so they can get away from the "my baby" stage and go to the "what if I do this" stage. AS for videos I would say any pottery video by youdanxxx. Maybe one of his father's too?
  10. Attaching Wooden/antler Handles

    What Tyler said!
  11. I've donated a few pieces to a local charity for a family friend who has kidney failure. While I can't say it helped my image it did help my confidence when I found out they were the most bid on item in the silent auction.
  12. Potter's Assistant

    I believe that it's how much dollars worth of pottery is made.
  13. For the classes I was in we went around the room pointing out where everything is and what everything is and the basics of how to use it. Then if we had enough time we made rulers with inch markers to show about how much the clay shrinks and so we can try a bunch of glazes on them.
  14. The specialist is the one who told me that I am likely to get arthritis with this because of the screw. Though I think I may consult my general doctor that I just switched back to that has dealt with a lot of football related injuries. yeah, line was the only place for me, from what I'm reading it sound like you're thinking soon after the injury. My surgery was 2 years ago, though I will try the Ibuprofen and stretching. My mom has issues with her hip where keeping the inflammation down keeps most of the pain away.
  15. I was wondering how other members deal with injuries that interrupt with clay creation? For me I had to have a bone graft on my left scaphoid due to a fracture from high school football. So now at the age of 18 I'm developing arthritis in my left wrist because of this (The doctor said it was a possibility. Better than it still being broken) so now most activities cause pain and if I ignore it the pain just stays for about a week. I've tried icy hot cream but it only does so much. I have noticed that wearing a brace during activities helps but I have yet to find a a slim waterproof one that I can use while I throw/swim.
