I sat down at the wheel to throw some large bowl forms. You can see the mound of clay waiting there to become a beautiful bowl. I had not thrown bowls over 4lbs in about a year so I started small with 12lbs to find my rhythm.
The first two had a bit of a wobble to them. As I got into my groove the clay moved more fluidly. After finishing the fourth 12lb bowl I decided to try a 25lber. I put the whole block of clay down, got it centered and pulled the bowl. It was not quite twice as big as the other four bowls, but it is significantly larger.
I altered the rim of two of the bowls to give them an organic, floral look.
