2010 Wheel Thrown Piece #8

This is the eighth piece I did again larger, but not perfect.

This piece was created with two different clays probably a

combination of stoneware and standard white clay mixed

(and not mixed as well as I Thought they were). After

finishing I burnished the surface with a copper pipe and

fired at cone 1. After that I rubbed it with steel wool and

fired again at cone 5 to turn it reddish. It ended out bumpy

because one of the clays shrunk more than the other at the

high temperature.
