When you shake the colourful balls, they rattle, jingle, shake. They all sound a little different I guess because of the thickness of the walls and the size of the ball on the inside. I made them on the wheel and just dripped glaze on. The cake stands were also made on the wheel and just assembled after, glazed with bone.
This is actually my first lidded form. I'm proud of how well it fits... well not perfect but its decent, but I would love to practice more lidded forms. The bottle in the middle composed of the three spheres was actually an idea I've always had in my mind, now that it's out I'm happy. The one on the right is just some other squatty bottle thing.
The one on the left was glazed with celedon. The two on the right are patin green. I love the one on the far right, its like a perfect straight roundy sides but perfectly wiggly on top. If only i knew how I made it, lols.
I started using the wheel January 2008 and used it for about semester. Here are two pots that I made, the one on the left is from January and the one on the right from May. Thats about 5 months of work and look at the improvement. From a boring slightly straight shape with thick walls and no foot. To a better curved shaped, a foot and white on the inside, I think the white makes it look more appetizing and also usable.
This was my first attempt at making a teapot, its hand built, a little too small to actually use... and first attempt at some small bottle forms. They are all glazed in the same colour so I just clumped them together, moss agate.
