The Potter's Shed  by Larner 6 Review(s)
Queen GaladrielReviewed Chapter: 10 on 5/11/2011
I love all these! I did pottery myself when I was thirteen and fourteen, during the turbulent time when everything about life was over-the-top wonderful or horrible, and even though I was never good at or fond of the wheel because I liked sculpting better, it was a wonderful thing to feel a figure form under my hands, rough and disproportionate as most of them were. The craft suits impetuous Pippin wonderfully. I was alternately touched and amused by these drabbles. And now I find myself remembering a project of my own when I labored for hours over a sculpture of the four Hobbits standing together.

Oh, and now we know why it's called slip! :D

Author Reply: Am so glad you enjoyed this, my Lady. And I hope one day to make my own attempt at reproducing Ruvemir's monument.

And, yes, we KNOW just why it's referred to as slip! Heh!

And the cycle repeats! Lovely! Pippin will be a patient teacher. :)

Author Reply: Good grief--I missed a bunch here!

Yes, Pippin is now encouraging others as he was encouraged. Thanks so, GF!

At last done with this series too! This has been sweet and I especially liked how 'grown up' Pippin was acting, showing Frodo around the place and explaining things.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Yes, Pippin was being quite responsible--and Frodo particularly patient--during the tour. Good for all concerned. Glad you enjoyed the series, Antane!

Now that's lovely! I like the idea of Pippin passing on the lessons of his aunt; her lessons will live through his teaching another! That's a great way to honor her and those who preceeded her! Many thanks! :)

Author Reply: I so agree! And thank you for the feedback!

Great ending!

And also the beginning of a wonderful tradition among the family which will hopefully continue for many generations.

Thank you, Larner! And a happy New Year to you and your family!

Author Reply: And I thank you so, Andrea. It was a joy to post this last addition to this drabble series.

Sometimes it is the smallest of things that bring precious people back to our minds. And now the caring and loving kindness is being passed down the generations. Lovely Larner.

Author Reply: Thank you so, Harrowcat--you are so very right! A blessed new year to you and yours!
