His Eminence

I had the last class of this session on Tuesday. We had a potluck dinner and watched The Art of the Potter. One of my students brought in this carrot cake. I learned the name of one of my favorite tools this session from another student who is in the medical field. It sort of took a life of it's own and has been added to the 'Philbeck Pottery Vocabulary'. I use my thenar eminence over and over when making plates, bowls, and other dishy shapes. I take it with me everywhere. I am hoping to get some tee shirts made soon, I'm not quite sure what they'll say yet.
