Fool Rushes In

Leave it to me to try something completely new with a material that doesn't suffer fools gladly. Here is a bottle that is first made by throwing a roundish body. Then after a little drying, a donut was added and thrown for the neck. I just saw this technique in the new book by Nic Collins, "Throwing Large". I've never tried it. The neck has a little twist in it and has some variation in thickness. Hopefully there won't be any cracking or weirdness from the unevenness.

Wishful thinking, fool.
