Making a pottery bowl from a lump of clay was my latest foray into trying something I’ve never done. And the bowl looks more like a bowl than I expected! Not all my first attempts have turned out nearly as well. But I always learn something from the trying. And I give myself plenty of elbow room of grace in the process and in my rookie results. So, go ahead, test yourself. Make an effort. Take a stab. Strive. What’s next for me? Maybe I’ll weave a table runner and placemats.
