For some potters, trimming is not much fun, but for me, I love it. A foot on a plate is not only an elegant support for the main face of the plate, but also serves as a handle of sorts, a place to grip when moving the plate from cupboard to table. These are the things I think about when I’m trimming. I hope you enjoy the video and feel free to ask questions and/or comment. i love your comments! #potteryvideos #potteryvideo #michaelklinepotteryvideo @klineola #howto #ceramics #pottery #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #cousinsinclay #klinepottery #plates #art#howicreate

|L-R, first attempt to fifth attempt|
writing programs for upcoming workshops, and trying to slowly get some pots made for the March firing. Maybe this is the new reality for a potter? At least it is for me.
Too bad my 8 hp Ariens snow blower sits in my shed in a pile of peeling orange paint and rust. In the twelve years since I moved to North Carolina from olde New England I could've really used it this time. But as I've done in the recent past, I will wait and let the sun do it's work.
It has been a treat to do some major sledding with the girls and hopefully our slope is so packed we will have some more tomorrow!
I'm still getting orders from the Etsy Sale and am very pleased with the support! Thanks to everyone!
