What about making a thinnish pinch pot and close it up (or two halves stuck together). Then before sticking an air hole in it, attach little coils that you've made to look like rope so that it looks like the monkey's fist knot, with whatever number of rows you like and have space for (3, 4, etc.). Even 6 would look good if you made them small enough and would give more texture for glaze to break on. After the piece(s) get leather hard enough for you to carve out any little details you like, then put the air hole in somewhere it won't show and attach it/them to the pot. It sounds like a great project for your nautical family. It would be nice to see a follow-up picture of what you decide on.

Making things from clay, of course; reading (mostly non-fiction, esoteric topics); writing; antiquing/flea marketing; zoo keeping for menagerie of furred and feathered friends; road trips with my husband; staying in touch with friends and fellow artisans.
