The example to my immediate right is before using a tool that was on a little wheel that put the pattern you see on the edge. This really dressed this piece up and the whole process very much reminds me of working with pie dough.
Each side was carefully measured and then scored. I then applied "magic water" to the score marks and hand pushed it together. Also, I rolled some dough in a snake and ran it along each seam and blended it, which I understand makes the pan stay together and adds strength. It took me hours to make, which I know is really slow, but it was so much fun. I met a very nice lady, in addition, to Lin whose name was Maria. She also was extremely supportive and helpful. I am looking forward to learning this new skill and sharing it through my blog.
For all you experienced potters, I truly admire all the hard work and effort that goes into making something beautiful and useful.
By the way, I intend using this to make brownies. It's completely food and oven and microwave safe. I will post a picture when I am finished.
