Throwing a 17″ Bowl

I have a custom order for a 15″ bowl… which means make it 17″.  It’s bigger than you would think!  It ended up being 10lbs of clay.Setting the split rimLucy making a 17" bowl

After I made the split rim… I’m now stretching it out and finishing it off with one of those great Sherrill ribs.

  1. that’s getting up there… i’m always surprised even when it gets up to around 14 inches how big it seems

  2. I know… 14″ is definately big enough! It’s just another whole level… getting it that big. I usually don’t make bowls that large, they don’t sell as well as a 12″ size.
