Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: bowls, process, production

Just making a couple larger bowls. I find it’s easier to throw them larger and shape them of the clay is in the firmer side to start with. Easier to throw, but a bit tougher to center. These started out with about 6-pounds of clay each.

After they were thrown & shaped, the let them set-up overnight under some plastic. Then they were good for stamping & detailing.

Here’s the second large bowl in sharp contrast to the smaller cereal bowls on the bats nearby.

The outside is stamped with larger stamps. The inside shows the finger divots and smaller accent stamp. The rim is fluted and detailed.
