Started work on the next project for ceramics today. We are to make a bowl using a slab of clay, rather than coil built. I used the slab roller to flatten a piece of clay and then laid it over the form I chose to use.
Then I just had to press the slab over the form, smooth and trim, and then once happy with the shape use a heat gun to set the shape a bit before removing it from the form.
Next will be decoration, for which I will use a design I came up with for the last project but didn’t use.
However, I now have four weeks off TAFE as we hand in everything for assessment this week and then go on holidays. So I will get back to this in July.
I’m really looking forward to this holiday. I think my brain is ready for some down time after the last six months of study. : )
