NOT QUITE THERE YET



Well, it is not quite round is it? When I got to the ceramic studio and opened this up it seems some of the clay around the top of the triangle slumped down a bit from the week before. Also the planning was not quite perfect and the circumference of the circle was not quite large enough to make it to the top. So I added more clay to fix the slumps and then did some decorative work by piercing the outer wall in a dot pattern, mainly to eliminate the possibility of it exploding. This piece is a replica of an exercise that i did a long, long time ago. Working out some of the things I did in the past sometimes helps me understand how I came to love working with clay. The three dimensionality of it is what I find the most interesting. And its wonderful flexibility.
