It was warmer out today, so I was determined to try some handbuilding. This is my first attemp at a lidded jar. When looked at from the top it twists, so I even placed the lide at a twist as well. The feet are stacked triangles. I will see how it fires and if there are no problems with cracking or separating I will try some more pieces. Perhaps a teapot or vase. After the workshop next weekend, I hope to come back with lots of great techniques to try.
This week I will mostly be working on inventory pieces so that I can get caught up for my shows in May. Then I can concentrate on show pieces. I would like to apply for my own show at Mint Hill Arts, but I need to make sure I can make enough show pieces in time for a July Exhibition.
Today I unloaded the kiln and photographed some more of my favorite pots. My best photos have been downloaded on my facebook page.
