“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
― John Lubbock, The Use Of Life
Pit firing is the first method that humans used to fire pottery almost 30,000 years ago, and that potters use today.
It was considered a great milestone in the development of civilization and some of this pottery has lasted to this very day (likely not so good for holding things now)! As a potter, I am grateful to be a part of this tradition that roots me to the earliest versions of ourselves.

I do love to look at the clouds !
Me too! much easier on warmer days. Summer will be coming again soon for more cloud viewing!
Absolutely essential to do. 💜😊
I watch clouds and I see some faces in the vases.
1st: I saw a big nose and when my vision lowered, I saw a wolf head.
2nd: At first, I was drawn to the blue and purplish array then my eyes were drawn up to see a feline face peeking through.
3rd:On the left top corner, I see a wolf with a red belly and 3 limbs dangling down.
Love this! Thank you for sharing, Astrid! I can see what you are saying for sure 🙏
