Batch 9 :: Designs

Designs have been laid in, then they’ll be let rest for a day, for pondering time. Never absolutely sure that a design works until it’s been left alone for a day or so.

It takes that long to do final burnishing to the top 1/3 of the pots so it’s all in the normal work flow. But these designs I’ve worked before, as they’re all around me in nature, so I don’t think there will be any changes. One never knows though.

It starts with an itch. A not quite right itch. And then in a flurry the design is gone and the piece is re-slipped and awaiting a newer better design.
