I did pottery for about ten years. I haven’t found a studio locally that I like, but maybe when my kids are older I’ll venture over to Raritan Valley Community College or back to Middlesex County College to take a pottery class again. It’s a very relaxing hobby. Anyway, my home is full of pottery that I’ve made. Accidents do happen, and someone who was quick to do the mitzvah of washing hands (before eating bread, Orthodox Jews wash hands with a mug and say a blessing) broke this washing mug that I made lovingly almost twenty years ago. Now I bury my favorite pottery in my garden, broken shards on display with my plants.
Carmi has a new theme, “broken”, for Thematic Photographic. What a great excuse to photograph my broken washing mug!
