Well here it is the end of the year, wow how fast it goes now.Well this will be my last for this year. A large bottle form made out of a porcelain stoneware mix, with a heavy relief pattern. Another one for the drying rack. Happy New year.!
This large bottle shape was completed this morning using imprinted slabs to make the form. These are coming out so good that i have to get more clay made to carry on now.
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.
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
to this form. I will give this a go with the next attempt.
