Learning how to throw on the wheel a few years ago totally changed my life. I feel like it's such a significant shift in perspective working with clay. I finally understood that mistakes really are how we learn-if you pull a pot too thin, leave it to dry too long, trim just a bit too much off the bottom...ruined. But you know for next time what to do better! And there's always another pot. The wheel keeps turning, literally and metaphorically hah.
