First attempt ever at throwing. A bit messy and useing scrap clay may have been a cheap way to practice but arguably harder to use too.
After a bit of practice with some new AWS clay and also trying out some slip casting in porcelain
ta da !
Oops a little too thin on the bottom made a hole while turning, dissapointing but a valuable lesson learnt.
Another oops. After this I sanded the broken edge down on an angle, results later.
Third oops at the bottom here, it was a lovely thin bowl but as I was smoothing it down it cracked so I tryed to make it a feature but it kept cracking, and I ended up with this shape. It had been slip cast, apparantly the cracking could have been due to me leaving it to dry out compleatly in the plaster mold.I wont be doing that again!
Above my first experiment with underglaze colours restricted pallette and a little scrafitto thrown in for good measure. The design was spontainous playing about around the theme of botanicals.
