A smashing good time in the studio...

Lauren and Conrad came to play in the studio this morning. They chose to paint some majolica pieces intstead of working on the wheel--which surprised me. Then we loaded up the pug mill with clay to recycle . While we waited for the pug mill to pug, the kids broke up--with a hammer--bowls and plates that I had selected to dispose of. I was following Chris Campbell's method for determining what to make: select the really good pieces and set out to admire and enjoy, discard the ugly pieces, study the ones in the middle to find the forms you like but need to improve on. I don't know how the advise will work for my production--but Lauren and Conrad had a ball busting up those bowls and plates!
