I finally got to meet my pots today! (Yes, I know the sentence reads funny, but as I see it- a pot is three separate identities.
1- greenware: in it's infancy. Which it may not survive in the kiln. It is still malleable.
2- bisque: it's adolescence. It has survived it's first firing. No more changes can be made to it's shape. Glazes applied.
3- glazed: it is now in it's final form. It survived the second firing. It is sometimes completely unrecognizable from it's first state.
Just my opinion.)
Anyway! They survived! and some unexpected- yet DELIGHTFUL- things occurred!
