Exciting pictures today (well depending upon your perspective!)
I've (sort of) completed my first coil pot - it is a big bugger and rather heavy here it is during construction
I promise that isn't what it looks like... it is what we are currently describing as worms or sausgages to add onto the pot!
Here is it a little more "polished" I've still got to even the rim off it's just a little wet to do that at the moment.
Nice ain't it! Even if I say so myself! I've even had two completed press molded bowls fired now, they are just waiting for glazing. I'm really enjoying pottery (apart from the throwing - which should as Sophie says be called slinging!) it frightens me a bit, I believe the teacher thinks I'm a bit weird to be scared of it!
The spikey one is a bit comet like - unplanned but I'm liking it now. I took persuading not to slice all the spikes off!
Next week - glazing - I like doing that too! Did you ever get the impression that I'm enjoying it?
