#69167 What Else Is Going On (Or Playing) While You Work?

There is almost always music at the studio I belong to. What is on depends on who gets there first and sets up the music. I like classical in general, but will listen to anything but rap or heavy metal. Other members have a nice jazz play list. Some times I just sneakily decrease the volume of what ever is playing to make it more comfortable for my ears.

#39115 What direction is your wheel spinning?

I'm a righty. When I took my first pottery class I was having limited success. I made several soggy lumps of clay then switched to hand building just to have something to fire. One night I suddenly was able to center and pull up a cylinder. I was elated and as the instructor came around I proudly showed her my results. She noticed right away that I had the wheel going "the wrong way". I have been throwing clock wise ever since. I have no trouble watching and learning from counter-clockwise instruction. My instructor has not tried to "correct" my backwardness.
