Do What Ya Luv (No excuses)!
One of the Sheridan students Jack aka Sean Robinson sent me this u-tube link that I hope he sent to me as I personify a guy that has done just that. I turned my back on currency in favour of a legacy. Thanx Sean I really enjoyed it!
I got inspired yesterday looking at a Han dynasty vessel. I thought hmmmmmmmmmm I live in wine country! I should make some Han dynasty inspired ice buckets. Saturdays here at Sour Cherry Pottery is Pino Grigio Day so now I will have ice buckets to keep the PG chilled. I bet people are going to want them. The trouble with sketching at the wheel is I forgot that I needed to make that middle ring concave so that when I stamp and push out it is more like a straight wall. The one at the back I threw out- It just didn't cut it!
I cut up a red plastic pail lid to make me a little profile to get the feet sorta the same shape and size.I cut them in half and will add them tomorrow- 4 to a bucket.
