Hi everyone, It's been a while! My mother-in-law passed lst year, straight after I had a spinal fusion. My sister-in-law asked me to make an urn for her ashes. This was 3 months after the op. It's now been 8 months and I've just had Carpel Tunnel Release in my right hand and my left is due to be done in 2 months. My problem is that they are getting a tad inpatient with the delay. So here's what I've tried (unsucccessfuly)... Throwing (came out too small), Slabbing into a bisque form and joining two of them, slabbing around a pvc pipe (couldn't stretch it without cracking), coiling, this has been my latest attempt. Coiling has never been a strong part of my work but now doubely difficult due to the CTS (my hand has now taken a lot of strain), they keep turning into bowls. My thoughts today were to slip cast into a bisque mold and join two of them, remove the top and bottom adding a foot and opening where I can form a lid. Problem .. thickness, the altering part, the pouring and using a bisque mold. I'd love to create a really elegant piece to honor her memory. Suggestions please.. TIA Andrea
