Perhaps you've noticed I've been selling quite a few pieces of my pottery. I guess I finally felt I could let go of all I've accumulated. There were pieces of pottery here, there, and every where. They were tucked in this box or that, on a shelf, in a closet, on a bookshelf, under a dust cloth, or in the garage.
There were several series of pots I made which I thought I needed to keep together. I thought I needed to keep them to refer to, as a remembrance of what I made, as a sample of one shape or another, as an idea of what else to make in the future. But it got to the point I had so much pottery I was like the "Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe with so many children she didn't know what to do". Really I think I have a hard time letting go of what I make.
When I first started making pottery I didn't want to let any go. I was afraid I'd never be able to make something like that again. Now I see I can make more. But I need to make room to make more. So I've been giving some pottery away, sending some for gifts, selling some at our home sales, smashing some, and Gary's been selling some at the market. Over the next several weeks I'll be offering lots of pots I've made the past year or so in my Etsy Pottery Shop, so please keep an eye out you might see something you like or can't live without. I'm already feeling lighter, feeling free. It's not so bad letting go, not so bad after all. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
