  1. I listen to audio books and podcats mostly. for books i really like most fantasy books, especially Harry Potter, Wheel of time, any of Brandon Sanderson's works. Podcasts I enjoy are The Adventure Zone, Saw Bones, Ted radio hour, sasquatch chronicles and startalk. otherwise if I listen to music I download a playlist I put togetherusing youtube red.
  2. My full time proffesion is being a production potter. I hope to start doing studio work on the side in the future however.
  3. So far my best day was back in July when I made 180 coffee mugs in 8 and a half hours. However in general a good day for me is when I learn how to make a new shape and can throw it in under 2 minutes by the end of the day.
  4. I don't usually use a mug but this one is my fall back from work
  5. Me and some other potters at my work have an audio book club. we all have an audible and share books with each other. I just recently finished Stephen King's IT, both Jurassic Park books, and The Demon Cycle series. Right now I'm listening to The Magicians books. Otherwise sometimes I listen to my music playlist.
  6. I'm regretting my financial decisions from a few years back when I was fresh out of high school. Now I'm dealing with my mistakes and it has pushed back my dream of buying a house and having a studio to create my art. I guess production pottery will have to hold me over till then.
  7. Just a bunch of things I have done in my 2 years
  8. I'm sure most people here have been called talented before by those around you so I was wondering if you feel like your hard work isn't recognized because people people attribute it to a natural gift? I understand that people don't mean it that way but I personally would rather be told that I am skilled in what I do because it has taken me years of hard work to get to where I am. I also feel that by using the word talent people are making these skills seem like something you have to born good at in order to do it. When my work is hiring I tell people I know and they say things like, "I'm not talented like you" or "I'm not artistic enough" and it drives me nuts because people don't seem to connect pottery with a skill that can be learned. This is just a subject that rolls around my head while I lay down at night and I feel that it was time to get other people's opinions, thanks!
  9. Really hoping to see something krampus related!
  10. It's all about the shape of the logo and the amount of pressure you use.
  11. Any video where the person destroys what they made at the end. If I were a teacher I would have my students break their first 5 projects so they can get away from the "my baby" stage and go to the "what if I do this" stage. AS for videos I would say any pottery video by youdanxxx. Maybe one of his father's too?
  12. I've donated a few pieces to a local charity for a family friend who has kidney failure. While I can't say it helped my image it did help my confidence when I found out they were the most bid on item in the silent auction.
  13. I believe that it's how much dollars worth of pottery is made.
  14. For the classes I was in we went around the room pointing out where everything is and what everything is and the basics of how to use it. Then if we had enough time we made rulers with inch markers to show about how much the clay shrinks and so we can try a bunch of glazes on them.
