I've been pretty hung up about keeping everything that comes off the wheel, which is a silly thing to think, and a silly way to start, but there you have it. It's one of those things you just have to learn as you go: to let go.
Here's a bowl I spent way too much time on. Only to punch a hole through the bottom because I didn't leave enough space for the wire. Tsk tsk.
Folded in the side just because it felt good to ruin it.
Turns out, it's pretty this way.
