  1. This is an interesting thread. I have kept track of the weight of the clay that I use and saw a clear decrease over time. I have noticed that my goals of throwing thin pieces with "ideal" forms often conflicts with what people want (thicker pieces that insulate and feel solid, and some bowls with flat internal bottoms). I have become less interested in impressing my potter friends and have no problem throwing a piece that the user wants. But, it took me a few years to be comfortable enough in my ability to throw what I want, that I am willing to make thicker or flatter bowls when the need arises. It just takes a couple heartbroken friends when their "beautiful bowl" is chipped to convince me to make sturdier ware.
  2. I don't know what it says about my personality, but I saw "sky and/or atmosphere" and my mind lept to the night time sky. Round. Majestic. Celestial. Rich color that must be drawn from the surrounding darkness. I have read these forums for almost two years drawing knowledge and inspiration. The challenge has inspired me to contribute. Thanks for the inspiration, I'm in. Anthony (yes, that is my real name)
