Learning to make a greek styled sugar/flour canister
Hand Building Pottery
This is week number 5
|The scroll work was applied using long strips that were cut thin and square.|
On the picture farther below, take a look at the newer canister sitting next to my flour canister that has already dried. It is still greenware because it has not yet been fired. I am not in a hurry, either, to fire it because I want to make sure the colors are perfected. Smile. I am not quitting my day job.
|Look at the lid. I have these strips applied to keep it in place.|
|The base was beveled and the slab rolled much thicker than the rest of the piece.|
Well that is it for my pottery class today. If you get a chance go to March 3, 2014 and you can see the progress of this canister set. I think I started the series on February 24 (or 17).
I almost forgot! Here is my brownie pan in use!
|It baked beautifully!|
