Carpe Diem #1259 creating beauty
Today’s prompt reminded me of the first time I got to try to make pottery on a wheel in my best friend’s basement.
pottery

fresh slab of clay
wedging air bubbles
spinning and shaping

fresh slab of clay
cut with wire from a block
a treat from you dad

wedging air bubbles
hands full of fatigue
not done yet

spinning and shaping
vessel beginning to emerge
collapsing again

from experience
your vessel holds it’s shape
a thing of beauty
forty odd years on my desk
token of youth and friendship
