 to the right, my next grand experiment. a simple thrown bottle, with a batch of egpytian paste slip. leaving to dry and then fire, probably by the end of the week. everyone is trying to convince me it wont work - i am unconvinced. we'll see 
  this grandiose looking monstrosity is a 'wheel thrown, cut and re-assembled bowl. or will be. i was letting the halves dry before joining them. i gave them all a 2 cm off centre shift for fun. erg. no clue what i was thinking, but had the presence of mind to draw it first at the minimum.

these crappy fotos brought to you by the letter S (for sony-erricsson, the worlds acest fone) dunno why it's blue tinged the top foto was taken in bright sunlight. i figure i've messed with some settign somewhere...

OK why isn't the bottle supposed to work? I couldn't tell if it is made from paste or decorated with paste. Either way I like the shape and it looks like you have great control to get the cone that precise.

I sprayed it with egyptian paste as a 'one fire glaze' type thing. it's not supposed to work, cause, well, as far as i understand i am thinking outside the square, and people don't like that. "egyptian paste isn't used like that."

*shrug* thanks for the comment on the bottle, i'm pretty impressed (hence why i released the foto ;)

You have got to be kidding about the attitude there. That's awful anywhere especially in art studios!!! Where do they think their materials and techniques came from in the first place? People experimented and tried stuff and thought so far outside of the box that the box got lonely and went on a holiday. Grrr. I hope it works wonderfully and you can point out how useful it is to try new ideas out. Even if it doesn't work no one should be discouraging you from exploring.

i think perhaps i was a bit harsh with my last response. they're keen fo rme to try things, and fully let me, justthink some of the stuff i am doing 'unorthadox'
