Hydria - Work-in-progress - Horn


The horns on this project are the side handles for a hydro-like container. If pulled like one might make a handle for a mug, the large end of the pull would be nearly 2" in diameter...and there are weight and drying issues that make that a poor option. In this instance, the horns started as a 1.5 pound lump of clay pulled over a wooden tool that is sold/marketed as a spout maker. Once the basic form/thickness is established on the spout maker, there is a small amount of traditional pulling involved before forming the twist on the horn.
