I’ve been fascinated by Potter’s who can take thrown pieces and alter them and create something wonderful. Recently, I have taken to altering pieces. I’ve been throwing a cylinder without the bottom, altering the shape to an oval, rolling out a slab for the bottom and then assembling the pieces once they are leather hard. This is very fun and is making working with clay exciting. I’ve been experimenting with making the handles more ornamental and making the whole assembly a bit more polished. The pictures are examples of what I have been working on lately.
