Today I worked on pieces inspired by workshops taken the past few months. The pitcher above used the technique of making legs with a triangle shaped slab attached to the bottom. I tried this a few weeks ago on a few candy dishes and liked the look. Alison did her demo on a bowl (left). The cup was faceted, one of the techniques Bill Van Gilder showed.
At the Potters Conference this weekend Martha Grover made a lidded box out of porcelain (above). I really enjoyed her style so I decided to give it a try. See my attempt at a butter dish/lidded box below
I am not very adept at handbuilding, so this is always alot of work for me. I hope it turns out. The jar next to it is thrown in one pieces then cut to make a lidded jar. I have seen this before but never attempted it. Both Ronan Peterson and Bill Van Gilder had a version of this so decided it was time to try. It turned out well.
