Some glazing suggestions...
when you are putting on many colors - which glaze goes on first - the detail or the background?
Plan to finish STRONG
check your progress scale - what have you gotten done?
Looking ahead ---
Over this week we need to -
remember we are going to conference schedule starting on Friday.
making a cup with a pulled handle
I can plan to make a cup -
Day one - make the cylinder body of a cup - think about form
Day two - I can pull the handle - foot the cup - attach the handle and put it in a bag so the handle and cup can get to be "one"
i.e. all the same dampness so the handle doesn't fall off when the cup dries out first.

step one - give yourself permission
YOU are a valuable and wonderful human being who DESERVES to do well.
repeat after me -
I give myself permission to make mistakes and I also give myself permission to do better and better each time. As long as I keep trying I am dong wonderfully!
I need to be working towards learning all the time!
Real learning is fun, and real fun takes work!
BUT - if I'm not on the wheel --- then I can't learn. I will get on the wheel NOW and everyday!!!!!!
extra clean at beginning of class -
Learning art skills is wonderful because it uses ALL parts of your mind - thinking, emotion as well as physical skills!
