I am my own apprentice

"Have you ever had an apprentice," asked Moshe Chaim,Safed wax craftsman,yesterday evening,"who could make a good copy of a piece of work the first time,but not repeat it?" He showed me a sweet but less-than-spot-on wax gecco candle made by one of his 2 apprentices to illustrate. I had to admit that I had not had this experience,but,this afternoon,sitting down to make a few carafes [not a simple shape],I got it spot on [I think] first time,followed by 6 also-rans.If it were in doubt,the shape I'm looking for is back row left- but you already noticed that,right? Posted by Picasa
