I'm scared - scared of texture. With a medium that if you mess up, you mush your clay up and start over, why would I have such a paralyzing fear of texture? I haven't the slightest idea.
I appreciate texture in other people's work. It's usually one of the principle reasons I like a piece. I NEED SOME TEXTURE!!!
And so this is my new focus. I'm going to start using textures on everything. No more fear. I'm going to pour on the texture till someone pulls on the reins and says, "You know, you really might want to sand this."
