I was looking through the photos, and although we worked hard yesterday, we don't have much to show for our progress. We had time consuming tasks to do, such as trimming and attaching bases to our big pots :
Here is the one pot which I actually finished, and left out to dry downstairs :
I forgot to take photos of his mountain pot, but he added double handles to it also. Here is mine with pedestal, but still missing handles :
I didn't take another photo of my casserole dish, since I added the pedestal, but still need to trim the lid, then add handles all over. Same with my 4 mugs, I trimmed a couple of them, but need handles.
Then for the big pitcher, I posted Tony's demo piece in the last post, and this was the sample piece :
I couldn't get myself to make a spout on it, as I am so disinterested in the pitcher form, that I decided I will add two handles instead. I love two handled pots. Anyhow, here is my big pitcher, in progress :
Overall, I liked the shape, but it looked too boring, so I decided to use some of that rough groggy slip on this vase. It gave it a whole new look. What do you think ? :
Oh, and I should mention that in addition to me slipping out twice to sit in on my two wonderful teenagers performing their sax and flute solos at their year-end recitals, our pottery class took a break at noon to enjoy a potluck lunch, and a small birthday celebration for our classmate Cheryl. I was pleased to be able to pick up my dragon bowl, who had just finished her stint in the student display, and showcase her as part of my chips and salsa and 7 layer dip contribution to the potluck.
We didn't 100% coordinate the birthday surprise, so Cheryl ended up with 3 different cakes : a carrot cake, a lemon cake, and a chocolate-raspberry cake. But she wasn't complaining, nor were we. I tried both the carrot cake, and chocolate cake.
