jack of all trades

So I think being a potter requires you to be jack of all trades. Although at times it feels your master of none. We not only make things out of clay but we are also: chemist, physicist, repair person, inventor and the list could go on. One of the things why I enjoy working with clay is coming up with new ways to work or manipulate it. So its always fun to come up with a tool that normally isn't used for clay and use it in clay. I used this spliner that is used for installing the spline that holds the screen in windows and doors. It just rolls on the clay and pushes it in at the same time. Great for making marks and altering the clay.
