Simon's ability to create these amazing pots is very inspirational to me and may be leading my pots in a new direction. The ability to show the amount of skill that Simon's pots do without being over refined amazes me. I think that my pots have become over refined. I hope to be able to implement this "less is more" philosophy into my pots.

I also just got a new cup from Tom Turner today! Although Tom's cup and Simon's cup seem to be on the two ends of the pottery spectrum they both offer a quality that I look for in my work. Both cups are very well made and show the tremendous skill of the potter who made them. Both pots are truly amazing and I am extremely happy to be able to add them to my collection.
