The Ebb and Flow of Confidence

I've had these 4 jugs wrapped up in Plastic for at least 3 days, just because I wasn't feeling confident enough to decorate them. Finally I put some good music on in the workshop and went for it. I did the one in the second picture first, I had ideas of an elaborate design all planned out, but after I made the first two lines I decided that was all it needed. I think the pot stands up for it's self, that's a great feeling.
That gave me confidence to tackle the other three above it.
and then on to the Porridgers that I made at 6am on Monday morning, before going off to London for a days work.
