Hi Mark,

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.
