Busy Busy Busy

I've been a little busy bee lately, trying to fill my biggest order to date. I'm sure this order would seem normal to seasoned potters, but since I'm a newbie, everything is a learning experience. Making a handful of cups at a time for your own pleasure is very different than making a few dozens of the exact size and shape. In order to make a dozen perfect cups, I end up making twenty, because chances are, something will go wrong with eight of them. Hopefully, with practice and time, eight will become five and maybe some day, even three? I'm an optimist, can you tell?

The pieces look great! Love the two-toned plates. It's lovely to see them all lined up. Thanks for sharing!

Mmm, beautiful!
I love the color and graphics.

And best wishes with this order! I took pottery in college and while my pot throwing skills stink pretty bad, I truly appreciate the form and art that goes into making one piece... let alone 20 as identical as possible!
Whew!
