Turning a foot

Something’s a foot and that something is turning. This week in Mud Slinging, that is.

This week I attempted to shape my partially dried bowls into something less rustic, a skill called Turning, the base of the bowl being called a foot. 

Time was against me as I had a massive learning curve but by the end of the session, I felt they were coming along.
 

Bowls with feet


There isn’t a lot of time to refine the new skills I’m learning and I’m going to look at a studio just down the road where I may be able to go and sling some mud around to practise.

In the meantime, these chaps are heading into the kiln and then in two weeks time (as we’re off to France and I’m missing a class) I’ll be glazing. 

Just in time for Christmas presents!
