I tend to be a very upbeat person...especially now that I have retired! I've enjoyed reading this thread. /but I was having trouble thinking of something that really discourages me until I read Chris's comment about lack of craftmanship. I see people making very sloppy work with little attention to detail, finishing, craftmanship, call it whatever. Best example is turning over a pot and seeing a rough, ugly, uneven bottom. Or thick throwing bumps in a bowl. And people are buying this stuff. Arrrggghhhh. Makes me crazy.
