When I make pots, especially a form that I haven’t made often, I hear my teachers talking to me. I hear them walking me through each step. I hear them telling me why you keep the clay narrow at a certain point. I hear them reminding me to create the shoulder of the pot first, then the belly.
This video is a lovely discussion about a Romanian potter. His thoughts about getting ready to create, listening to the clay, and life in his village.
