My vases and bowls are hand built from slabs. These pieces are created by pressing wet clay slabs into a rubbery hand carving. The bowls were pressed with different carvings on the top and bottom while the clay slab was flat. The bowl is then placed on a plaster hump, worked some more and allowed to dry. My pieces are fired twice, the second firing for glaze to cone 5 or 6. The bowls are photographed sitting on a mirror so you can view the inside and outside in the one photo.
