Good Enough

Opened another glaze kiln this week, and it was good. No uglies except two previous blistered pots I was refiring in the hope of improving their surfaces.
Pot drop time for those. (Concrete floor.)
The rest worked. This may sound like nothing momentous.
It is, though.
After two dozen years of figuring it out, my work is at a good place.
There will always be new challenges, but for now...
Web site is in restructure phase and will be up and retail within a week.
Purchase buttons and Paypal are moving into place.
All to no avail if the pottery isn’t good enough.
Oh, my. It’s good enough. There is no perfect, but if there were I would be insane.

Good enough is so good.


  1. I'm so happy for you! Both professionally and personally!!!

  2. Good enough certainly is so good!
    I think that actual machine-like perfection would detract from the simplistic beauty of a handmade piece!

  3. I really hope the retail website is officially up soon - it looks great, and it's something I think you've needed for a while.

  4. I love it when pottery has imperfections in it. Some of my favorite pieces were considered a total failure by the artist.
