I love the look of these wet pots but they were absolutely horrible to throw! I have no nails left and my hands are raw! These were made from chunky black clay (black when fired) I've decided to make a slip from this and try painting it onto a smoother clay - maybe a stoneware which is a lot nicer to throw and a quarter of the price!
This is the press mould bowl with the thrown pots joined on. they were slightly too dry when I got to join them so are not quite so 'squashed' as I would have liked. I carved the rim of the big dish back with a surform blade when it was quite dry and it has given it a lovely worn rounded edge
