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?
