Was busy at the wheel again today. It would seem as though that's the only class i'm taking but it's not. I'm just enjoying the awakening to something that I really seem to have a natural affinity for. Did three bowls, a bottle that I'm happy with and two vases. went back after the textured vase; this time a little bigger.

Thursday saw the genesis of four more pieces on the wheel. One bowl and a vase, each textured an a bottle that may never see the light of day since i'm not too happy with it.
The third piece, a round-bellied vase seen below was an experiment with texture using sodium silicate mixed with terra cotta slip. This is a keeper, since it was my forst time and it is a technique that I will definitely be trying again. Thank you to Hsin Chuen Lin and Ceramics Daily for the inspiration and instruction.
