My ceramics class this semester was so much fun. We got to make all kinds of cool stuff, and at one point I felt like I lived in that studio. Too bad a lot of my glazes went crazy and turned nice pieces into kinda ugly ones. That's the thing; you spend so much time loving your artwork, and then one detail goes wrong to destroy it. Plus you can't help thinking, gee, I could buy a teapot for a lot less than it took to buy the supplies, design it, build it, fire it, and glaze it.
Oh well, art is all about the love.
