phill posted a topic in Clay and Glaze ChemistryAnyone understand how to get such a fuzzy trim mark? Fuzzy isn't the best work, but it looks like the clay is torn rather than trimmed. Is it because there is a lot of sand in the clay? Or because the clay is really short? Or another reason? This photo is a cup made by Bandana Pottery and found on instagram.
Greetings! This will be my first time posting, so I hope this question is relevant. I was in the studio today doing some trimming. Trying to create a small foot, I ended up trimming too much and went through to the inside of the bowl. I tried to salvage it by bandaging it up with some more clay, hopefully it holds up. Is there any way to tell at what point to stop trimming (taking into consideration the weight of the bowl)? I really like the aesthetic of a small foot and the visual effect of the bowl looking like it's hovering. However, I end up trimming too much when trying to achieve this effect. Thanks!
