Madura Yellow Batik

While prepping for wood-fire of the anagama kiln, I have taking notes of all the potteries that I needed to make.... and then, overthinking things start to take over.

Overthinking feels helpful, but it really leads to negative thoughts! I finally come to my senses and start to sort things out… shape that I am not sure, rims that are too thin, shapes that hardly stacks.
In all honesty, this overthinking matter actually covers all areas in life as well, so this is what I did:

-          Focus on the positive that is happening right now
I tossed out and recycle the clay from the bottle shapes that I don’t really feels like keeping, save fuels save space

-          Go to a peaceful place in your mind
Going back in throwing functional shapes for friends that would love to have some of my tumbler, friends that really appreciate them. Their love is a sure thing ;)

-          Put your awareness back to the present moment
Allied with one of the girls here and create a shape that I can stack with her pcs, next time I must be sure to be more aware with others and stop thinking about my own stuff. It’s not copying when it’s different shape, it’s about fellowship of potters

-          Reverse sabotaging thoughts or worries with more peaceful one
Throw a shape that I love, instead of worrying about what functional stuff I have to create, and … have FUN!

-          Get out in nature
Hash run today, so... bye potts see you tomorrow!
