So finally all the pots popped off the bats and I was able to start shaping and texturing them. This is only the beginning phase. Lot's more work to be done as there is more shaping, and then burnishing of them with rocks, and then slip applied, and a final burnishing again.
After that the designs will be applied and we will be close to the pit firing.
I love that I felt the zone for the first time in 32 years. I've missed that.
