No one cares about the bottom of a cup....
WRONG! I care, I actually care a lot, and so should you.
Let’s talk about the bottom of pottery, because it is important!
Unexposed clay on the bottom of a pot can feel rough, but the bottoms of all my pieces are soft and smooth.
First, all of my pieces have what they call a foot. This is the inner cored out ring on the bottom. The reason why this is important is because it allows for less surface area to be on your furniture when a piece is warm or has condensation from being cold.
The soft smooth feel... well that comes from a multiple sanding and polishing process that each piece goes through.
The bottom is something that you touch, and it touches and slides across your furniture!!!! Trust me, it may not “matter” to you that it is smooth, but it certainly would matter if it wasn’t.
This is just one of the many details and the care that goes into each piece of Off Your Rocker Pottery. Thanks so much for reading my emails and supporting my work, this journey would not be possible without you.
Until next time, keep the sunshine in your heart and pottery on your table.
