The “big” assignment in Ceramics is to make a coiled form that is at least 18 inches high. Another assignment was to find an ancient form and ‘copy’ it. Enterprising students could combine these two assignments. That’s what I have done. I figured there would be quite a bit of shrinkage, at least 10 percent, so I decided to make mine 23 inches and remove all doubt.
This photo is the top piece, and it is right side up. After it is the right size, I will have to add a neck and attach the entire thing to the bottom piece. This is a very fun project and the best part is that the school kiln will be big enough to fire it!
