In Praise of Liking Mistakes

Michael Kline

Chris Staley and Cody Goddard have made some incredibly compelling videos.  This is one of my favorites. Thanks to Laura and  Lori for posting this video in the last couple of days on their blogs.

I am posting it here today in hopes that tomorrow another potter blogger will post it on their blog. Keep it going!

Chasing Plastic

Michael Kline

Hey! You win some, (a lot, really), and


every once in a while, thankfully rarely, your lose one.
It's been so long since this has happened, it's always humbling, not to mention fun to play around with the pieces!

Why cry over spilled-milk, or cut-through-bottoms? Have fun. Delight in the mistakes. Do better next time. There's always another chance to make good.

Lot's of plastic to chase on Tuesday.

Day Two of the Big Week!
