The master trimming a massive platter this made the biggest mess so I tried to capture the flying clay on camera.
The tools he used were as sharp as a razor. Trimming bone dry really dulls the tools so he has to sharpen them often.
Here is a picture of the new rabbit. one of his ears is broken because the gatekeeper picked him up by the ears. It is nice t have the pet around I suppose. Any name suggestions?
Here are some more teabowls/cups I made today to practice my trailing. I am pleased with the use of two colors now. The white is just the porcelain slip, but we have some flashing slip I cant wait to test that should be an exciting red or orange.
I am getting so pumped about this slipware. All day I thought of the days when I was sitting around with the ole slip bulb at dougs place learning about it all. I am getting addicted to slip carving and trailing. I suppose it is contagious since some of my best pottery blokes are real into it.
