With a little help from my friends....
Wine goblets are one of those things that are something of a challenge to make in clay. There are several different ways but I am trying the build-the-stem-onto-the-bowl, not the join-the-two-pieces-together. First I made a selection of bowls last week.
Today I trimmed the bowls smooth and then threw a stem on top of the upside down bowl.
It sounds easy? Well not for me, this is where the "friends" part comes in, aka our instructor, who gave lots of help, and eventually there were ...
a whole set of them!
they still need to dry, to be bisque fired, glazed, and glaze fired; but in just a few more weeks they will be ready for their adoring public. Whoever it may be.
