I wasn't here in January, so I'll list mine now. I think I'm well on my way.
1. Fire my electric kiln confidently and on my own
2. Repeat throw to a gauge with consistent form
3. Find 4 new glaze combinations that I love
4. Make plates that are consistent and not ugly
5. Learn to throw large mixing bowls
6. Get a good handle on using body weight and leverage to center, and get my wheel set up for more ergonomic throwing
7. Get more experience with throwing lidded jars and pots
The kiln is set up and ready to test. Psyching myself up to do that.
I'm getting better at the repeat throwing, but haven't added the gauge into the mix. I'm afraid of messing something up
No progress on the new glaze combos. May have to order some of my own glazes for that to happen.
Plates are my April goal.
I took measurements for a proper-height throwing stool this morning, and need to work with my Dad to get it made. Might try raising my wheel up to throw standing in the meantime.
I threw a few yoyo pots and a flat-lidded pot with a gallery. Need to do a LOT more. And work larger.
The big mixing bowls will have to wait a bit. But they will get done eventually, because I have to know how to throw big bowls to get to my next year's goal - historic replicas. I want to be able to throw a roman clibanus (cloche oven) and functionally sized Iron Age style jars, cooking pots, and bowls.
