Here are some more of my bowls
These bowls were challenging because glazing them is very difficult and im currently working on a green pot with a flower.(its down below) since these are challenging they have helped me improve my bowl making skills and i have even challenged myself by hand building a big cookie jar.
If i were to change something I would use more clay. I feel like I can control a bigger amount of clay so I am slowly working up to it.
when i was making all of these i had inspiration from pots and bowls that ive seen from places and changed them up to make my own stuff. An example of this is my hand built pot. I thought it would be cool to have a pot that looked like winnie the pooh's honey pot but as i was making it i decided to change it up a bit and make it weirdly shaped.
Since the last time i learned how to make taller cylinders. I tried to carve out the sides of the one on the right.(It worked yay!) I learned that if one hand is lower than the other it turns into a bowl. I learned this after about 5 lbs of bowls.
I took a couple risks throwing including the carving up there. The bowl and the teacup were also risks because i did not know how to do these things but i took a risk and it turned out good.
Throwing clay is a meaningful and engaging task for me because i like to do it and i try lots of different things when i throw. I also try to see what i can comeup with.
What i love about throwing is that it is generally a quicker art form so when i start i dont forget what i was planning on doing with it like i did with the painting of the sea.
