Next Day's Progress

Here is a similarly formatted and documented set of shots showing the latest vase in progress. Yesterday’s posting was almost the same but today’s images show the difference that clean up and fine tuning can make. The top of the piece, the mouth, is new and different from yesterday’s but the same handles were incorporated in a different location. I am becoming more convinced that this piece should not have a flower i but I will make one to see. The original drawing shows a very delicate, wispy flower that would be impossible to make out of clay. I am reminded of Val Cushing’s making more than one lids for his covered jars because he always challenged himself to have more than one solution to finish his covered pieces. It may be interesting to have one of these pieces capable of having two different “looks”.
