I loved watching the transformation! The vessel is looking just like your illustrations :o) It seems that working much taller can get a bit precarious though. I also thought it was good that you measured it to see if it could fit in the kiln!! That is something I've done -welded this big @ss sculpture and couldn't get it out of the shop -I had to deconstruct it!!
fun video... i like the casual nature of it. you got a big vase there, i alway like putting the 2 and 3 piecers together, always a bit of a surprise and they do get tall fast.
hey cindy, scary eh? well not quite there but not bad for no.2 vessel..i just have to remind myself to take it slowly, got a bit ahead of myself lat night with the top bit, but i'll leave it for a while now busy wkd..mornin jim, prob wont seem that big when its fired..
Enjoying the videos, you do a great line in jaunty theme music too! Interesting to see your work in progress and to watch over your shoulder as you go through some of the decision making. Always interesting trying to unify the various parts of a pot that has been made in sections rather than in one piece. I threw some 2 piece jugs last week, and adding the extra clay to the top certainly helps get the weight well distributed through the pot, and the balance to feel right.I like this multi-media blogging (even at our pathetically slow line speed).Hope you had a good weekend.
hey peter, haha always a good tune to go with my pots..it's certanly interesting thinking out loud and quite helpful in the decision making too..oooh sorry bout the speed of your internet but glad you can still see the vids, just back from market and very wind swept!! hope your not near any coastline they were talking tsunami warnings this morning..
