I bet I can duplicate the unwanted froth wave again............finally recalled what I did (but not sure I want to, lol).........yeah some control is needed.........the more time and effort I put into one pot the better is turns out. Soup bowls sound like a terrific winter suggestion!

I made a small dip container with a pointed handle/tail on one side, reminiscent of Celtic pots..........it was pinched out.........I really like it...........and I guess I would do some sketches and then make a winter soup bowl like that......the pointed handle is not great for cupboard storage but its very handy :)

I really appreciate your comments..........I like the surprize element in pottery........its terminally boring to see 4 cups same size same shape with only variations in glaze colors........speaking of glazing..........I am happy with some of what I have done and use weird methods and a concept.......split 2nd timing........weird glaze effects can be ok........cracks not really :)

Thanks for writing Babs......

I do not recall, most likely not held upside down............one of the glazes was chun
