Another Pedestal Bowl
Here's another pedestal bowl with a free form shaped pedestal similar to the previous one but slightly different. For this bowl I didn't add handles. The form is more oblong and not as undulating.
Below is a shot looking down on the pedestal bowl. I asked Gary to take this photo, him practically cursing at me that I'm crazy and should be in bed instead of taking a photo of my clay piece. For me making art is both a blessing and a curse.
Right after I made the bowl I wasn't well so I put it in the cabinet and didn't attend to it at all. The edges were never cleaned up and the bottom of my form shows a little too much. Normally I would have removed the bowl from the hump mold much sooner. Once it dries I can sand the rough edges and smooth the lines left by my hump form with one of those green scrubbies. Of course I have many more pedestal shapes in mind and hope to get to some of them this week. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
