Day #2 – Footed Creamer – 1 LB of Clay 25 Ways Project

Since I’m not describing my thoughts about what’s happening in the video Day #2 Footed Creamer Video (it’s also down below) , I’ll give my BEHIND THE SCENES insights HERE J
(See I still have to communicate in some way…LOL)

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS PITCHER:   I prefer a more simple “perfect form” with just a dab of “imperfect”. If I DIDN’T have the remaining bits leftover, I would not have added the texture. This is not to say that I’m not happy with the texturing (so fun) and will add to an interesting glazing, but for my aesthetic taste I liked it best with the cracked handle as my dab of imperfection to go with the smooth lines of the form.

REMAINING CLAY: I’m not sure if you noticed, but when I throw on the wheel and trim off the bottom, I save this to use later somewhere on the piece. On both days I ended up adding something I didn’t intend to at the start. It made me realize I could be doing this for the remainder of the project if I don’t think it through more at the beginning stages to avoid ending up adding extra to the end piece. J

THE ATMOSPHERE:  I’ve had nice music playing in the background, time to sit and imagine and just really enjoying my time in the studio! WOW have I been enjoying it! One thing I noticed is I’m spending so much more time on one piece, where as before I now realize I would rush through to start making the next thing. Being a fast paced person by nature I thought a slower pace would bother me, but (for now) I’m completely content designing and pondering in this environment 😀 !  
Hope you enjoyed today’s piece and I’ll be back at it again tomorrow!!

Thanks for watching and go ENJOY SOME CLAY!
