There is something quite satisfying about seeing the finished product.
The strange thing about potting is that I can remember making every pot when I see it even years after the event. Each one has its own individual story and sparks a memory for me.
The great thing about hand-made ceramics is that very pot is unique – even when I make sets there will be some small variance between each pot. I see that as an added value rather than a distraction. I do actually prefer to make stand-alone pots as this gives me a greater sense of creative freedom.
My overriding wish is that my pots give their owner pleasure in use and that they are cherished / valued in some way.
