In the Studio
I thought that I would show a picture of the plates I threw today. I don't throw these plates as much a smash them with the wheel spinning. It is a form I made a lot of after my accident a couple of years ago. With really soft clay I use the side of my palm to form the very slight curve. I then scrape and rib to get a real smooth surface to paint. It's a nice form to decorate. And with just the right camera angle makes me feel good about today's output. By the way here is my eight pounder with handle. It will be about a gallon and a half when fired.
