#8846 If you could easily hire someone, what pottery job would you want them to do?...

Posted by PuraVida on 26 September 2011 - 03:02 PM

The job I would have them do would be processing my local clay, it is such a task so much work but totally worth it. If I could get away with just making the pots and let someone else do the digging, drying out, smashing it up and sifting it through mesh, rehydrating it, then laying it out on plaster to dry, and then wedge it so that I could just come in the studio and go right to work. That would be awesome but I suppose I would lose some appreciation for the work if I outsourced the first steps. But oh how tempting it would be.

Good question,
Anthony

Hey everyone,

I would hope they would say good things. But if they found any pieces still in tack I would see it going something like this... "hey mike come check this out.... It looks like some kind of ancient vase or something. (mike) Oh wow that looks great I'd like to take that home and give it to Linda it would look great next to our robot closet."
