I decided to continue working on tumbler forms. While those from last week are cool, they don't allow me very much room for more surface decoration. I want a simpler form. I was inspired by Martha Grover's demo she does for Ceramics Arts Daily. Martha's pots are very fluid and unique, and to construct them she throws open forms and attaches a slab base. I wanted to explore creating unique bottoms for my work as well. I really enjoy the bottom of #1 the best because it looks like a little cloud took up residence on the foot. I think this is something that may be incorporated in a lot of my work from now.

Also, meet my handy studio helper. It's quite wonderful to look down and see his face when I'm working.
