Clay Pinch Pot - My Work

As I age and get more comfortable demonstrating in front of my students,  I find that my work is becoming more fluid and spontaneous like this little pinch pot here.  Mistakes don't bother me anymore, I just go with them instead of trying to repair them.  So if something rips, I rip the piece in even more places.  I'm also really enjoying using hardware store items in my clay work; nails, staples, washers and such.  When fired with the clay they expand, bend, look old and tarnished.  Kinda like me.  I like that.  So here's to growing old, but thank goodness the students keep my mind young and current!  LOL  I will miss that when I retire.
