Wiggle bowl and mug with spirals


The mug was a mistake. I lifted the clay too quickly while pinching too hard. I ended up with ridges and a slightly uneven rim. My first impulse was to throw it into the recycle bucket but there was something about it that I liked. I trimmed off the unevenness at the rim and threw a ripply bowl to match. The next day I added some intricate slip trailing and I can't tell you how glad I am that I kept them after all. These are two of my favorite things I've ever made.
