Being a potter producing work for daily use requires many different qualities. Some of these seem to be natural to the individual, while many require practice and repetition to master. From design to the final result, good pots call on many skills, artistic to nuts & bolts mechanical.
Tom enjoys the challenges that making pots brings. It encourages constant exploration, sometimes resulting in disappointment but often enough great satisfaction.
