i l o v e clay in the greenware state . . . when it is still called "clay." after it is fired, is when it turns into "pottery." i just realized that this must be why i have always (subliminally?) called myself a "clay artist" rather than a "potter." and as all of my potter friends will attest to, i don't even really like pottery. i know, strange, but true. all of my pottery posse are true potter's potters and really into pottery and the whole pottery scene. but as usual, i am a bit of an outcast. i've always been the black sheep. which must be why i love sheep so much . . . but that is a whole other story.
