Here's another tower with 25 strips of clay and it's about 12 x 7 x 2.5 inches. I'm calling it curls because after the making I've taken a carving tool and sliced horizontally into the strips randomly around the pot.and let the slice curl dangle. Maybe not random enough. I'd like to make another one with a few or maybe one really long dangling curl and have the curl a little more curly. Oh I know how I can get the look I want with that long curl.
When I was looking at the piece more closely I was thinking I could apply slip all over the outside, wait for it to dry and then slice some curls in revealing the original clay color beneath. I could have lots of those in different colors. Oh I could also have diagonal slices through the strips or maybe some circles, triangles, squares. So many possibilities, if only I could work faster. Then again, I've got to have the settling in and thinking time too. This post is part of Mud Colony what's happening in the studio. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
