Do-Over


Sometimes a great idea winds up in the trash can. Or, as Thomas Edison put it:

There are not 10,000 failures,
but 10,000 ways by which
to learn what does not work.

I thought my bisque-fired but unglazed nicho (above) looked pretty good. Then I turned it over. Susan has told me more than once that structural cracks like that in a piece mean that someone wasn't paying attention in Ceramics 101. Guilty as charged.
