In the works

Posted on: July 15, 2013

Was back in the studio again today my arms were up to it today. They had been pretty weak feeling since a recent checkup left me with bruises from them trying to draw blood.  I still have some faint bruises but my arms don’t feel like limp noodles anymore. Which was good because I had a sizable amount of clay to work with and I was going for something big!

I threw two vessels today a small slender one and a large round one. Both were made using the clay that I began reconstituting weeks ago. I probably have enough in my bucket to start the process all over again. It was a little wet but still manageable on the wheel. I am going to make a plaster slab a little bit later tonight with some help that will help dry things out a little faster than just setting them on canvas. I could always grab a spare hair dryer but I have always found that way of speeding up the process to lead to some issues, like being too dry in one spot and leading to cracking.

Below I have pictures of the vessels I threw today and a pic of the clay spinning before I made anything of it. It’s a good before and after transformation.
