Bottle form.

Bottle form.

This large bottle form i came up with today. The top was turned on the wheel and the sides are made on the slab roller.Here i have used a stoneware clay and just before the final kneading i added some red iron oxide to a handfull of clay and then mixed it in to get the marks.This i am hoping will burn through a thin slip i will apply later.

New form taking shape.

I have been working on my new shape and trying to get the work method right. It seems to be taking shape now and i think i have solved the problem of the lids.This is a turned form that is altered to form a box shape. I have also had a few original ideas for attaching handles
