When I first took pottery classes
I tried to learn to throw on a pottery wheel.
But it was hard.
Kicking that wheel around made me sweat.
It wasn't until ten years later,
when I was destroying some rejects,
that I really learned to throw a pot.
I took these pictures in 1982
and they were published in
Studio Potter Magazine in 1983 (Vol 13, #1, page 88).
Now I can't find the originals
and only have the magazine page to show you.
By the way, Studio Potter is the best pottery
magazine in the world.
