THROWN /HANDBUILT POT
clay, glaze & ceramic pencils
I wanted to try a college project from my years spent in the Cal. State U. Long Beach Clay Dept.
with my pups.
To throw a pot on the wheel,
let it sit to become almost leatherhard,
then handbuild something cool on top.
I had one student who got what I was after.
Senior Celeste Zambrano.
She threw a bowl,
turned it upside down,
then handbuilt a torso on top,
achieving a female form/torso.
Then to make it even more feminine,
glazing it with ceramic pencil flowers.
