Tonight I trimmed and carved the two snorkel pots and threw a new crackle pot using sodium silicate. Instead of a garlic pot this time I threw one with a more formal rim. Since I couldn't get my hand inside I had to stretch it with my throwing stick, which is a wooden spoon. I normally use my finger to make the ribs so this time I had to use the handle of the spoon for the ribs on the corners.
It's good practice since it's harder to feel the thickness of the clay when using a wooden tool instead of your fingers. By changing things up it allows us to stretch a bit.
