Here are some pictures of my progress so far! Instead of putting two pieces together I threw a form in one go that I was happy with. I am excited about this because I did not think I would be able to throw this with one piece of clay. 🙂 I did it ! It is about 30 cm tall in the wet stage so expect it to be around 25 – 28cm tall after shrinkage. This is a new clay body for me so I am not entirely sure if my predictions are accurate. I don’t have the recipe at home so I will write it down and post it tomorrow.
I made the lid a few millimeters too big so that I could trim it to get a nice clean fit. Today it was too wet to trim (so hopefully tomorrow)
The vessel is about 1cm -1.5cm thick, Its pretty consistent throughout the form. Its heavier then it looks but I am okay with that considering the amount of carving I will be doing.
I included some pictures of pots from other classes for scale.
