I'm new to this forum and new to ceramics. A friend gave me a kiln so I thought I would give it a try. I've done a lot of research and watched a lot of you tube videos. I have been told not to make my stuff to thick. I am making straight walled cup using the slab method by wrapping the clay slab around a large dowel. The cup walls are 1/4 inch. Is 1/4 inch too thick for a cup 2.5" tall and 2.25" around? Looks like it might be a nice cup. Like a double shot glass. I reinforced the bottom and side seems. I used the score and slip for all the joints. I'm made 6 so far and some are closer to 1/8 in since I figured out how to roll the piece on the table to stretch the slab tube. This looks like it's going to be fun. I am going to carve some tribal designs in one tomorrow.
