This is a prime example of why I am so hesitant about getting rid of studio stuff.
The tumblers are part of a set of plates, bowls, tumblers that I bought for my class of developmentally delayed adults. They enjoyed working with different forms. However, I have not even thought of them since I retired several years ago.
I had them in a box to go to the resale shop when I started looking at the gravy boat below. I used to make these fairly often. I never glazed this one due to too many cracks inside. This was from a thrown bowl with the rim pinched together. I cut a vee and inserted a slab like a gusset to make the spout with thrown and handbuilt additions.
Looked at the mugs and looked at the creamer and thought of handbuilding using the mug, and pinching the rim together and forming a spout. These are easy to grab with one hand. They will probably hold a bit over one cup when finished.
I like the one on the left better. I cut part of the rim to make more of a curve in the top profile. These two are just the beginning, but as usual I am enjoying exploring a new form. I am not even sure where the creamer form came from. Probably one of my books!I'm sure it has been done a thousand times over, but I am still enjoying making these.
We are supposed to have a super Memorial Day weekend. Remember and celebrate all those who have given their lives fighting for us!
As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*
