A to Z Random Post # 5 - E - Empathy !
He throws me down.
I’m centered on the table.
I begin to roll , slowly at first, and then at a rising pace, when he opens me.
I try looking out for a friend, but I’m floored by then !
He pulls me , with skillful ease, and trims and turns me again.
Minutes later, when he’s done with me, he takes me down and makes me stand in the sun.
I look at my friend, in empathy. I’m sorry I made fun of her when she was dancing to his beats a few hours back.
I now know what she must have gone through.
Becoming an earthen pot is no easy job !!
'Throwing' is the process of creating an earthen pot in a potter's wheel. The 'table' here is the turntable, also called the 'wheel head'. 'Centering', 'Opening', ' Flooring', 'Pulling', 'Trimming' and ' Turning' are all steps in 'throwing' a pot. Know more about it, here.
