Newly made, drying as slowly and evenly as I can manage, this is the most complex form that I have attempted in handbuilt pottery to date. It will need a bit more finish work, but that will wait until it is more or less completely dry. One process accident may have already fated this piece to remain a concept piece, as the handle was pulled slightly away during work. I've remedied this as well as I can, and I certainly hope the correction withstands the stresses of drying and firing. There will be more of these pots, whether or no. It was a very satisfying form to make.
It reminds me of the old Roman water pots, I love handles that you put to your pieces, for me the handle is always a difficult part ...ReplyDelete
Congratulations Amy !!
I love those Roman handles also!! Sadly, I am having difficulty attaching these successfully to these pots. I think perhaps the compression of the clay (these pots are coiled) is too different from a thrown piece?! Or perhaps it is my clay... Anyway, I continue to work!! I will find a way, I think :)Delete
