Within my experience, whenever I have explained to someone how easy something is, there is a disbelieving attitude. I'm not trying to diminish someone else's work, but to explain that there is a lot of smoke and mirrors within the clay arts.
What do I mean? Can you use a pencil and then erase it later with no harm to the piece? Can you use tracing paper and set down decoration? Are you doing a lot of the same images or decorative elements with little variation? Are the materials you are using > 90% non-reactive and 9 times out of 10, come out close to perfect? If the answer is yes to these, then you are probably not doing something that needs someone to be a master in order to accomplish.
At least for me, I find the decorating aspect of clay work not as difficult as the fabricating of the piece. I do, however, respect those that spend many hours decorating one object. But I have an even larger respect for these people that are using their own formulated glazes, underglazes and slips. Clay chemistry is more difficult than buying and using pre-made and pre-tested glazes. Most of the issues are tested and solved when using the wide variety of glazes.
