Instagram photo by celesteorteleeThe last days, it's so wet here in this tropical island. Non-stop rain. I can't help it, but it effects me. The soil of my planted seed babies shows mold😞And without a heater inside the house, I decided to crawl under my comfi soft blanket for the rest of the afternoon. A large mug with my favorite hot green tea next to me. In The Netherlands my cute pets would keep me company now 💕miss them.
But something makes me happy too.
I reached a milestone. If I should call it like that. It's more of a dream came true. Last week I started to learn how to throw a teapot on the wheel. When I started studying pottery in Japan, people here told me, throwing a teapot is one of the most difficult things to do in pottery. Evenly thickness of the walls, not too heavy, not too light, the sprout doesn't drip and so on. I feel good that after 1 1/2 year practice I consciously see myself arriving at this personal milestone. On the picture you'll notice the beautiful failure too😂. Next step is the sprout and ear or handle.
Would love to know about your milestone. Wish you all a lovely day, with warm sunlight. Even if the sun doesn't shine 🌞❤ #milestone #onthetable #teapot #tea #momentforyourself #ceramics #natural #botanical #handmade #handgemaakt #keramiek #teatime #petlove #kitchen #tea #comfi #tropical #rain #sunshine #doingwhatyoulove #wheelthrown #clay #tableware
