Texture In and Out
Here's the last of the cone 10 clay with a textured vase I made from the big slab I rolled in the last post. It's about 11 x 5 x 4 inches. I textured the slab with intersecting lines, but I wanted more texture for the exterior, so I textured the other side of the slab. I don't know if I've ever seen a vase with texture on the inside, have you?
I'll be firing for the next week if the weather cooperates. Hopefully no thunderstorms so there isn't a risk of the electricity shutting down. By the way, it's really hot and extremely humid. Guess this is the weather everyone was warning us about when we moved here. I can't imagine how hot the garage will be with the kiln going. Our big fan is still buried in the bus somewhere. We're waiting for all the tiling to be complete before we unpack everything.
Once all my work is fired I can decide which clay I want to use for the projects I'm working on. Meanwhile my studio is the last room to be tiled which is giving me another opportunity to re-organizing my supplies. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
