Coiled Pots

Our second lesson was on coil pots I have to make three.

Here is my second one,

This pot needs to be a finished size of 10 inches tall, 5 more to go. I used Brutus’ old metal food bowl as a base. I wrapped it with newspaper to allow for easy removal later. I put coils on the outside bottom of the bowl, and paddled them smooth, on the inside you can still see them. I created four coil circles and used them as a template for cutting into the base. I scored and wet the base before attaching the coil circles and the next three rows of coils.

I love that I am able to use the pocket stone Lexi gave me of Christmas to smooth out my clay.

I have a few options I am mulling around on how to finish it off….we will see what it wants to be.
