Although I've been a potter for years it took me a few years to call myself a potter. I felt I had to earn that title. So...potter it is!

 none of the categories quite fit me. tile maker? sculptor?  hand builder?

potter isn't accurate either though i don't howl about being in the big tribe.

oh? and that other word, at least it is better if you take out the extra 'syllalibble'

i.e., ceramist rather than ceramicist.

I'd say that I'm a potter and I make pots. 

 

It doesn't preclude me from making pots that are art, and I can fill that role as well, but I'm good with potter. My day job for the last 15 years has been making, installing, and fixing things, and I feel there is a lot of value in titles like craftsman, artisan, and tradesman. If they have lost value in society's eyes, in then it up to us to change that.
