My time in Asia has definitely changed the way I see pots. Pottery is so much a part of the culture there, so revered and respected; it's enough to make a guy envious. I see my own pots differently and have new forms I want to play with, or new takes on some of my standard forms. I've got a few experiments made up for the firing at Kevin's in November, and I'm excited to see how they turn out. It's a new adventure!
