You just look at the very first piece I made when I started my potters “career”, 14 years ago. It is hand built (coil technique) and bellied out with my fingers. The shape is erratic, the walls too thick, the handle too big…. But it not only looks like a water jar, it is also used as one. Its home is my Italian studio and I use it every day to pour water when I’m thirsty.
Now how about you?
Do you still have your FIRST, and if it is functional, do you use it? And…... would you show us a picture?
