Here is a bowl I hand built last week. It’s in the kiln today going through a bisque fire with some other stuff. Funny story about this bowl. I rolled out the clay with my porta-roller and draped it over a plaster mold I had made a few months back. When I came back, there was no lifting it off the mold. It had dried too much. So I cut it into pie pieces and pieced it back together.
I added decorative strips along the way, added casserole handles and little round legs. Oh … and I used a heart stamp on the decorative strips. The inside of the bowl is not smooth or even. Let’s just say it has character.
