Topic tags/keywords: pot

Made this pot in my senior year high school art class. It is made using the Coiling method.

Coiling is one of the most common traditional methods of sculpting clay. It’s a simple process of using your fingers to roll out thin, rounded coils, which you can use in this form or press flat. To create a pot, make a simple base and then wrap the coils around it to build up the pot.

When vase was made up and still moist I took a pointed wood stick and added texture and pattern.

The throat of the vase was big enough for my hand when it was made of wet clay.
After it was fired it shrank enough that my hand will no longer go in it.

Also shown is my favorite hammer.

Pliers are another part of my old tool collection.

Nice looking pot and has stood the test of time. I like the texturing, looks much like a wood vessel that has been textured and bronzed. Great to see the use of other materials on here. Is the hammer in case it didn’t turn out OK.

I read the title and I figured if anybody still had pot from 1972 it would be you, Dan. :-)

Is the pot full of pot or has it all been used?

Nice Dan

Hey Guys
The pot never had pot in it >grinz< .. a few coins and hundreds of peonies flowers. My mother kept it full. She had 300 peonies bushes on her property.
