Wow! It has been so long since I've thrown anything that it's a wonder the mice haven't taken up residence in my wheel.
The larger form wanted to be a small teapot. I like to cut my clay while it is still pretty wet, thus the lid. I will wait until it's a soft leather stage to begin working on it.
I've been trying to throw a little heavier than I usually do. I use Miller #25 a fritted terra cotta. The frit makes it possible to throw thin. Sometimes a good thing, sometimes not.
Question: How do you discourage Helper Cats from helping?
