Bowls and Damp Box

I threw 13 bowls today. All different sizes and shapes. I’ll glaze them similarly so while eclectic, they will match. Then I took them off their bats, cleaned the bats, then cleaned up. I love a clean studio.

I don’t have time to trim them therefore I placed them in my damp box. A damp box is a tub with a couple of inches of hardened plaster which has had a cup or so of water poured on top which keeps the plaster hydrated.

These bowls can sit a few days or several weeks and not dry out. Voila!
