after a day of throwing, this is what appears. we've moved onto 'ovoids' and 'closed' forms.
i am hanging for a break in a week.

Closed forms are fun!!!! I liked making concentric bowls from tubes.

Your sense of form is great - I really like the shapes you make.

I think me means making circular stuff by rolling dough into long cylinders and wrapping it on overlaying degrading loops to form bowls. Or is that a confusing description too. Aw fuck it, *Gibber*.

ah! coils pots?

but these are constructed differently - i threw them on a spinning wheel, from a lump of clay.

You can make closed forms that are toroidal instead of speherical - but it has been a while since I have done one. It was kind of like making a platter and then folding it back onto the center although you can make the concentric bowls without doing it that way. Dang I need to work with the clay to remember exactly what I did - one way was to throw a bowl by opening up the form off center and then opening the center for the inner piece. If you open off center you can make it into a closed form again and remove the center - I made a stand for a bowl that way and then manipulated it into a triangular shape once. It is easy but most people focus on just bowl/vase shapes. If you make a closed ring you can let it go leatherhard and then carve opens into it for another kind of fun non-spehere/bowl form.

If I can think of a better way to explain it I will - but no I wasn't referring to coil work.

You should put something in those, and then close them completely, and then bury them in your backyard.

It will give archeaologists 2000 years in the future something to debate!

"These small figurines, made of a primative form of plastic, were worship objects depicting various culture heroes that acted out a variant on the Kronos legend of slaying a repressive father figure"
