I was disappointed today that I didn’t get to start adding the neck of this pot, but it is taking shape really well and I am very happy with it. Over the break I have to work on what decorative elements I’ll be putting on the outside of this, but I have an idea of what they will be so it is just doing some designs on paper ready to work next term.
The pot is about 30-35cm high so far and the neck will probably add between 10-15cm onto this. I certainly don’t make small pottery pieces! This one shouldn’t crack though as I’m using paper clay which is much more forgiving than the raku clay I used for the pelican.
