Paddled Teapot

I pulled myself out of my e-reader and got out some clay. I intended to follow Jamie Meader's You Tube video on how to make an orb. She is one of the artist who have stepped up to the plate to share through the social isolation and one of my favorites. I did fine up to a point, but when it came to joining the two halves I had more of a tom-tom than an orb. I got out my wooden spoon and reverted to old tricks...tricks used by the ancients. I paddled that thing into shape...well sort of. I felt better even if I wasn't as successful as the indigenous potters. It really did help to lift the gray cloud that's been hanging over me. Those of you who are sharing social isolation with a loved one might want to give it a try.

Stacy, Marilen, when we are no longer isolated I need a refresher on pulling a handle! 

Mary Ann, I loved that you commented and I figured out how to make it public then  I lost the whole section. I will figure this out if the quarantine holds long enough. In the meantime please share what you are doing and I'll keep trying to figure this blogging out.
