This week's throwing includes several unusual special order pieces, including some extra large vases and lotus bowls, and a "handprint" style gravy boat. I also built a batch of dancers, which are figurative, sculptural pieces. They are worth a look in their leather hard state. Many ceramists believe that the most perfect finish is the unfired surface, while the clay is still damp.
Here are a few photos of this week's finished work at Lake Merritt, and one of today's display. Also a couple of pieces a customer took home today, and was kind enough to share with me.
