I am not keeping up with the projects demonstrated in class. Various ways of creating the bowl and pedestal for a birdbath, and today some lanterns and sign posts. But I am trying many of the techniques, learning lots, and ending up with some cool items. Today I remembered to take some photos.
vase I bought before Christmas, which was extruded and thrown by Linda Doherty and carved/decorated by Sharon Reay. Today we did some extruding, so I decided to challenge myself to make some of these. When I was making them, I should have looked back in my photos of Linda's vase, since the rim of hers is pushed out like petals, and mine is flared without the petals, so shaped more like morning glories. I had a feeling something was not quite as I remembered it... Anyhow, I am pleased by how they turned out, and decided to make 4 different heights, so they could be a set.
