More pots

I got some more pots and lids made last night (Tuesday) in Ron's class. Working like a fiend (why is friend so close to fiend?) on my 100 pots. I actually put some on the greenware shelf to be bisqued. Woo-hoo!

I missed Ron's demo on Alan Gaff's cut handles, but Julie came in and demonstrated the way Ayumi Horie "dry-throws" her mugs. She starts out with a solid cylinder of clay and "carves" the mug out of it. It was quite interesting, but I don't see myself using that method any time soon --I'm still trying to get the hang of throwing wet.

Tonight: more pots.

Editor's note: I have been informed today (9/24/08) by Ayumi Horie herself that she throws the mugs wet and the bowls dry. My mistake.

Actually, I throw the mugs wet and the bowls dry.
