Firing went well. I got ten nice teapots.  They are for the two-men exhibition in Syracuse in March.

I threw a large platter and a large vase last two days.  I used a really soft clay for the platter and a semi-soft clay for the vase.  Vase is three sections.  I wanted to two sections, but cut off too much clay from the top early on.  I probably leave the platter undecorated and have a fun with the glazing, and decorate the vase with carving and stamps. The bottom section of the vase is a bit taller than I wanted. So I need to disguise it. There is lots of trimming for them.

    Wow amazing work! I used to throw my plates with clay on the slightly firm side but after experimenting I much prefer it softer even though it means you have to throw quickly!

    Thanks. I prefer the firm side of the clay,but am trying to switch to soft clay. It’s hard. I may learn to throw loosely,that I can’t do.
