I like to throw my small bowls off the hump. The routine of centering, throwing, cutting, and repeating tends to makes my bowls more similar in shape when I do this. There is no reason to measure because I enjoy making each one as an individual form, but I do know that by repeating the action, I’m training my muscles to make a similar shape.
Once the work is complete, the bottoms are sanded so they are smooth and will not to scratch any surfaces. I hand wash each piece, photograph it, log it into inventory, price it and post it out on all my social media platforms.
Each piece I create is a one of a kind piece – handmade for one who appreciates details and fine craftsmanship. One it is purchased, it begins it’s life as a functioning piece of pottery – hopefully well loved and cared for.:)
