#46135 Crack In Finished Bowl ?

Posted by cgb on 19 November 2013 - 02:07 PM

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 :)

Just want to say that it's a beautiful bowl ;o) I'd still use it in my home, even if I couldn't sell it or give it away. I have a square plate that I made and the corner cracked. It's on display in my kitchen, one of my favorites!

Thanks..........I just took it out of the closet and will use it in my kitchen.
