Rich says the same thing, drives him nuts when we go through the box and things have mysteriously vanished I do have a sketchbook for my more out there ideas which I can usually leave alone but I'm such a perfectionist.

Colette- thankfully both of us here at Grin hq are creative so we're used to having to climb over half built things, hoovering is often a bit tricky though

As for the demons- amusingly enough there are a couple that have become part of the extended family to the point of people asking about them when they call, it's obviously catching!

I'm a real perfectionist sometimes, I want all my pots to be just so and I get a bit hung up on them all looking identical. Its a difficult skill to get pieces to all look the same.

Theres a gentle balance between the handmade nature of pottery and desire to get things to look similar.

I always hope to get better and improve, I really like the physicality of making pots and the satisfaction of that moment when it just all seems to come together like magic!

littlewren, personally, I would like the imperfections if I was buying pottery. I like it looking a bit rough and manhandled. Your pots look great and I love the colors you achieve too so you can relax and stop being a perfectionist! lol

lol, thanks Cathy : )

It's very easy to be super critical about your own work but then you always want to push yourself to do better, work harder, and improve the overall quality.

It's a double edged thing isnt it- on the one hand, we constantly improve and invent yet we're never happy for long when its done. Personally I think they key is flogging it before you change your mind
