Large bottle form (44cm )

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.
