Benzine, those gasps would definitely be me :) I guess it's all part of the learning process. I have cut through a few pieces but most of them have been the ones which are already heading downhill.

I suggest a larger diameter foot and more defined on your bowl.Thats the pnly image I viewed.
I worked for 1 year on my mentees pottery feet until she owned her own foot style.
This process takes time and lots of work.
The net is a poor place I feel for Critique
But you asked for it.

Mark,

 

Thanks for your advice, and I don't mind the critique one bit. I have already improved my bowls significantly since the original post. I should post some pictures of my recent work in bowls sometime.

 

I appreciate your time sir. I know everyone is busy this time of the year.

Quick update: http://s1183.photobu...ound of reviews

 

This is the only mug I fired in my most recent firing. I just had some other stuff sitting around I wanted to get finished, but I tried to take everyone's critique into mind when I put on this handle. Much thinner, the handle thins from the top to the bottom, it made it closer into the mug, but also plenty of room for 2-3 fingers depending on size of hands. I personally think the handle fits the mug pretty well.

 

Thanks for all your help.

That looks beautiful! I like the tapering of the handle and the fact that you left it white. I sometimes forget that the clay body is beautiful on its own. I put a vase on the glaze shelf this week which has a portion on the outside that is intentionally left unglazed. Fingers crossed that the result is at least in some way similar to how I've imagined it!

Some practice adding handles of various shapes and sizes to different shapes today. Also two bowls.. I still love making bowls so very much. 

 

I thank you all for your critiques. I feel like my mugs handles are getting closer and closer to what I want them to look like.
