Balancing Authenticity + Efficiency

Trimming. I was traditionally taught so it took me years to convince myself that it was ok to use the Giffin Grip, a tool that helps you center and trim pieces. Regardless of the subject matter, there comes a time where we're challenged with balancing authenticity and efficiency. I've learned you can achieve both.  Tools like this have allowed me to continue the basic ceramics or pottery fundamentals yet have allowed me to push my skill set and creativity to the next level. Simple, timeless, modern ceramic wares is the foundation to clay + craft's mission.
