Wednesday night I made a pale attempt at one of Nick Joerling's closed form vessels. I had all the parts, but it lacked all the grace and whimsy of his pieces. I never intended to keep it, just try out the technique. After taking this photo I squashed it and put it back in the clay bag. It sure was fun going through the process.
I decided I need some larger (medium-sized) bowls so I threw a couple of them with some really stiff cone 6 clay.
