Now, I’m not trying to start a discussion on the relative merits and comparisons between wheel throwing and handbuilding, or recommend against using tools, or suggest that those of us who have more of our actual hands in the clay are better or more informed or more satisfied in some way than others, but I do think there is something nice about being reminded after several years in clay of the reason I first got into it—the amazement at the things one can do with just hands and clay.
