I’ve tried to throw clay on the wheel once in my life, and the experience was not so dissimilar to driving a manual car on the roundabouts of London. In both instances, there were far too many things to pay attention to and I felt quite overwhelmed. But I feel that the time has come to attempt at least one wheel again, and I choose the pottery wheel over the steering kind. It’s the practice, practice practice bit that turns me off, and turns most people off when they realize how much harder it is than it looks. But I think it’s a worthy challenge, and one that will open up possibilities for me, and perhaps even prove meditative if I can get the hang of it. It’s what both overwhelms and excites me about pottery, and life, how very much there is to learn.
