Managed to get throwing today. Couldn't get out yesterday, so I was starting to go cold turkey!
Threw some ball vases/ginger jars. Some at 1kg (2.2lbs) and one at 4kgs. I wanted to throw some larger ones, but I threw the large vase without a bat on the wheel, so I couldn't move it without risking damaging it.
You can see it above. It was just to thin in profile to risk it.
Here is one of the 1kg ginger jars with it's lid:
I have been thinking: I really should get some pots made to sell. I'd been planning to do lots of repeat throwing to sell locally, but I decided to make some more frog/animal pots first and get them onto ebay to see if I can sell anything. It seemed a bit daft to throw, glaze and fire hundreds of pots before I have enough stock to take out to sell; when I can relatively quickly make some sculptural pots.
Maybe I'm wrong...let me know what you think.
Thanks for visiting.
