A visitor asked if wares are thrown or molded. Every piece is thrown on the wheel; I'm not doing any casting, molding, or hand building - except handles, which are pulled by hand.
I do use a flexible metal rib to set the profile; the rib also smooths the clay. There are finger marks on the inside of mugs, jars, and vases, however, I use the metal rib on inside and outside of open forms (bowls and plates), hence, no finger marks.
I'm also using the metal rib to smooth and burnish the clay as the final trimming step, hence the surface almost matches the untrimmed portion.
Look closely - each is unique!
Closing up for th' day, thanks to all who stopped by Open Studio this weekend!
