what building technique do you use? This is stunning and beautiful, and the texture is so interesting. Is this a slip cast? Or done with some kind of slump mold?

I actually find that the edge that snapped off adds to the piece...it makes it even more earthy than it would have been. It doesn't look like a mistake...:)

It helps in giving the impression that it's a delicate and time worn piece. This would look fantastic in a very modern or contemporary setting...it would tone down the coolness of that style and provide excellent contrast.

Really lovely piece.

Thanks :)

It was made in a plaster mould...the clay was spread out and then the holes were made in it pushing through to the plaster...as the clay dried and came away from the mould the pattern on the outside wall became stronger.

Very nice. I like the texture being different on either side. The shadows made by the colors is grand. I love uneven/random edges. Delightfully delicate.

Thank you, maybe I should just accept that it's a happy accident and adds to the piece! :D

It's beautiful! You just manage to take the heaviness out of clay and make it look like an element of air...

Thank you...the lightness of the pieces actually causes problems sometimes, as there isn't enough clay to suck in the water and get the glaze to stick.....they take ages to dry before firing....but I've got used to that now and make compensations! Thanks for the fav! :D

How is that unfortunate? I'm guessing that it's the indentation on the right side, and I think that makes it look more organic and much more active, more alive. :) I like it.

*cough* But if you don't like it I'll shut up.

Hehe, thanks...I guess it's just that it's not intentional, therefoore, I see it as a defect, whereas someone looking with fresh eyes may see it differently! One of my pierced leather hard pieces recently fell apart completely....I am going to glaze it, stick it back together and replace any missing bits with white miliput....so it has the look of an archaeological piece in a museum.... Thanks for the fav! :D

I can understand that. I guess you can always try to make the piece again in the way that you see it in your head. :) In the meantime you still have a very nice looking bowl.

It still looks lovely though! I love how light and airy it looks! Like a sponge or a cork. : ) And that's a lovely blue color. : )

The missing part isn't quite noticible. It works with the organic feel of the entire piece. I like it =D

Thanks! You know how it is, when it wasn't on purpose, sometimes it looks wrong, even though no one else thinks so! :D Thanks for the fav! :)
