  1. I’m going to teach myself spiral wedging sometime, which prompted a question about wedging in general. I throw clockwise on the wheel, I usually just do a quick rams head wedging to prep my clay. I have not really paid attention to the direction of the wedge once I work it into a ball and put it on the wheel. But is it better to wedge in the same direction as your wheel or the opposite? My gut tells me it should be in the same direction but I don’t know why. Any input? Thanks!!

    24 oz green leaf mug

    From the album: Favorites

    Wheel thrown and hand carved. The bottom features a leaf design created by using paper leaves as a resist to the underglaze. Sgraffito designs were added along with a pulled handle and spiral embellishments. Fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.

    Topsy turvy mug

    From the album: Work in Progress

    I had fun with this one. I was in a really good mood while throwing it, then I added some stripes in the slip on the surface. When I was done with that I stroked my finger up from the bottom several times in different places to create a dented diagonal stripe in the piece, then turned the wheel back on to straighten out the rim. Something this fun needed a really elaborate handle, so I hand formed a deep curvy handle that turns into a little extra foot on the bottom of the mug.
