More vases

Today I worked on more vases. I tried a few new ideas. The diagonal groves on two of the vases is called lobing. Last night I went to the Mint Hill Arts and watched a pottery demo given by Sylvia Coppola. She demonstrated the lobing as well as a few other techniques I would like to try. I loaded the bisque kiln again tonight and will fire it tomorrow afternoon. It is supposed to snow this weekend (yuck) So I need to work hard tomorrow, since it is forcast to be 60 degrees. I hope the weather is good next week, because I would like to start glazing. I estimate that I have 80 more pieces to throw to be ready for the March show.
