Every aspect of pottery has a learning curve to it ... sometimes we pick the knowledge up quickly and life is good ... and other skills take longer and more difficult to get. For me, color, decoration and texture have always been fun and easy to figure out. Throwing, I was probably average ... glaze enjoyment - below par ... firing - an ongoing learning curve. BUT ... 'flocculation' and 'deflocculation' have always been confusing. Every time I have to sit and think it out. Yes, I know the trick of "flock of sheep gather together" etc, but then I have to translate that pearl of wisdom to the slip or glaze in front of me. Thanks goodness for Vince Pitelka's Studio Potter book ... my copy probably falls open to that page. How about YOU? What are your slow and fast learning curves?
