A new bowl

One of my objectives for this year was to try other forms, such as bowls. This of course is a natural progression from the jugs that I have made over the last year. I’ve enjoyed making the jugs since I first started on this new direction of my creative juices into ceramics. On my first wheel, which was a pottery turning wheel and very inappropriate for the task of throwing forms, I started to feel my way around the plasticity of the clay. I now find my self in a unique position, in that every small step I take leads to another possibility of creating. Creating what I can hear you say!  I think by that last statement I am trying to covey the difficulty in getting too a consistency in my throwing. A lot of blogs I read jump to the finished forms they have created and don’t seem to reflect on the process of the journey at getting there. Throwing clay I have found is those small steps i mention earlier, is learning  one hard lesson in that its got a memory.   New Bowl
