As Lee said, I think you will eventually change your feeling about =
wanting to sell or give away your pots. If not, well, that is OK too of =
course. For me, I seem to rarely hold back or look back at the pots I =
made. When I see pots of mine, I feel more the space or time or people I =
knew when that pot was made. A critique when they come out from the =
kiln, and onward. Right now, I seem to be in constant motion, making =
pots and thinking about how I will make it better tomorrow or something =
else I want to make tomorrow. The only pots I have in my house are pots =
from friends or ones I bought from interesting/unusual potters and =
potteries, plus enough seconds for the flowers and plants. There are =
many things that linger about the pots I have made, but I do not really =
need the pot. But I have a tiny bit nomadic "mindset". I do not like =
too many things around.

I am very pleased when someone has a pot of mine that I myself liked.

Best regards.

Sounds very attractive to me. I think I will try it.
