2010-05-27 Clayworks

I made this pot in two pieces (body, and then neck) and after I attached the neck I realized it was slightly off center to the body.  I cut it down the middle with my wire to check the wall thickness and was planning to recycle the clay.  When Max saw me cut it he told me I should put it back together on an offset.  I liked the idea so much I cut it again into quarters and offset that cut as well.  The bottom didn't want to stay together as well as I would have liked, so I put some sutures in the seams.  It has been suggested to me by several people that I should also wrap some wire around the neck.  The idea is growing on me...

I really love working in clay, but I might have mentioned that previously.
