You may be wondering what “seconds” are, so I will tell you. “Seconds” are anything that is not top quality. Anything that hasn’t quite made it in the end, but is still aesthetically pleasing and functional for use. For example, I have posted a couple of vases for sale on Etsy that will hold water just fine, but the foot of the pot is a bit rough-looking. I have smoothed it down to the touch, but does not have a finished look. That has become a “second” and the price is reduced! So, if you are looking for a deal check out the “seconds” section on my etsy site. Here are the “seconds” that have been posted:
I always hope there will be no more “seconds”, but ceramics it too unpredictable. There are so many variables in this medium from start to finish. I feel like this month has been a month of “loss” in my studio. I have lost a lot of pieces! It is so frustrating! I guess it teaches me perseverance, to just keep working and try to work out the glitches.
