|I used the homemade clay extruder to make the coils to build this yarn pot and then I hand molded the leaves and berries to decorate my pot. I put a hole in the other side to pull my yarn through.|
This is the first hand built item that I made and fired in the used kiln. (I was not expecting miracles but it will be functional.)
|this small cup is the first thing that I turned on the wheel and will probably be one of the last things. I don't enjoy hand turning. I prefer to hand build but I have to tell you...I still would love to have my fingers in wool over clay....I just love pottery pieces and wanted to give it a shot. I will continue to practice when I am not working with my fiber.|
|Hand built, very crude, and believe it or not...I was shooting for crude. I have a very old farmhouse (over 140 years old) and it screams country, I plan to put a bouquet of flowers in this over a foot tall pitcher and sit it in my kitchen on the kitchen table.|
I also had some bowls and a teapot that came out but none of them tripped my trigger!
