  1. From the album: Sketches by Paul

    Upper parts of the hydria are starting to come together. The container is just over 18" tall at this stage and was wheel thrown in two parts, assembled on the wheel, allowed to dry for a few hours and then given the final shaping/neck-forming. With the addition of the footed-base, the greenware will stand just under 24" tall...that cannon happen until the base is hardened sufficiently to hold the weight of the upper portions.

    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.

    Close-up of the ram's head hydra with all parts assembled. At this stage the piece will be allowed to rest until leather hard, then additional details will be carved, scraped, textured, etc.

    This is the first of the two ram horn handles attached to the hydria project. From the original sketch, the ram's head and horns were to scale as an attachment for the hydra...now, it is starting to feel a little more like a ram's head with a hydra attached. All to say, sometimes you just roll with it and see how things turn out. Some minor alteration of the belly of this pot has been done (i.e. the round form has been elongated slightly)...I'll sleep on this change before making additional alterations. The forming of the ridges on the horn does take a bit of time...probably an hour and a half, plus 2 cups of coffee . -Paul

    Concept sketch for a tall, slender hydria-like form. I've made ram's horns before but have never used them for handles...we'll just have to see how that works out. Construction of this piece will probably follow the following sequence: Build all 3 horns Build hooves-feet Build 3-D Ram head Wheel throw 20" lower portion of the form Wheel throw the top 5" of the form Assemble top & bottom - allow to reach soft-leather-hard Alter container to receive ram's head and horns Construct head/horns/feet and rough-in line work Apply slip for sgraffito areas Define/complete carving & textures Do sgraffito work Seal/cover and dry slowly
