I have been working on some of my tallest forms the past week. I usually use my stand up potters wheel for all my work, but as I was throwing I was having a difficult time pulling the clay up. So I tried the same amount of clay (9 lbs)at the sit down wheel and voila… it was so much easier!
These forms are my most detailed urn that I make…there are just so many stages to completion. Here they are drying, waiting for the next step where I apply the shellac or wax resist for the pattern. The large forms are 9 lbs and the little cute ones are 3/4 lb. I will post more photo’s as they progress.
