a jade ring carved for my wife by a friend in China was the inspiration. the clay is Laguna Soldate 60, thrown vessel with thrown and altered form with pulled clay appendages.

Do you create the octopus before or after?

I got the idea for the vessel and overall form after seeing a picture of the ring in process as a rough carving and finally got around to throwing it just after a friend dropped off the jade carving from China. I haven't done a lot of this type of work so its always a struggle taking the first steps until i get into a project a feel things flow the way I'm looking for.
I'll post a photo of the ring on the main form, I don't know how to add it here.
i might has misunderstood what you were asking, i throw the pots first then I create the decorations to fit the piece I've thrown on the wheel. pot first, next day trim the bottom and then I threw a small form (fairly dry) for the body of the octopus, next I pulled 10 handles and attached the 8 i liked best to the small octopus form and carefully begin attaching to the pot starting with the body first then one leg at a time as i feel looks fluid and life like.
