To start up my residency, and get some work filling the space, I have been making pinched bowls: 15 yesterday and 15 today. 15 is an easy number to finish at a time, without overtaxing one's pinching fingers. As I pinch with both my left and right hands the strain is shared between them and is lessened.

|The air is so dry that the day's bowls can be footed by afternoon. Decoration starts on the first group.|
