In examining lots of spouts on pitchers, my biggest complaint has always been that most would pour horribly, and the rest would dribble or worse. When I saw Mick Casson's pitcher spouts, and later Robin Hopper's... I knew there had to be a way to emulate their spouts.
I've often been asked what I think separates one potter's work from another's. I think it generally boils down to the details. Any potter worth their salt should be able to throw just about any form with relative ease. That same ease manifests in intrinsically interesting ways when one examines the finishing details more fully. Case in point: Look at feet. Look at spouts. Look at handles and attachments. These details speak volumes about the intimacy a potter expects to share with the user. Careless, casual, attentive, abrasive, conversational, impatient, meandering.... all describe ways of relating to these fascinating details.
My hope is to take more pics over the next couple weeks.... of other potter's work. I would love to open this up to general dialogue. Any ideas are always welcome.
