I started making some footed bowls during the Pecked phase, and I decided to try to expand on that with a bag of clay I found and reconstituted. Free clay = no waste if it turns out terrible.
Turned out GREAT, MAN!
|Yeah, I know what these look like. They're feet.|
With the width being what it was (big bottomed) I wanted to make sure it was stable and supported. So six feet did the trick!
I tried some new glaze combos I was experimenting with and am really happy with the result.
|Maker's mark made with typewriter hammers.|
|Only five feet this time.|
I formed the so-called Cloud Bowl over a mold, then added feet and flipped over when appropriate. You never know if it will survive the flip, if the clay is hard enough, if the feet are connected enough or centered right. You just have to keep making them until you figure it out, and even then you can put a lot of time into a project and it just dies. But this one survives!! I love the glaze, it's the same combo as the Six-Footer.
Now my Aldi cacti and succulents live here.
I'm prepping for my open studio sale! Follow progress on Instagram and share the event on Facebook, please. This thing is counting on word of mouth!
