Design +

The first wave of pieces having been thrown, trimmed, shaped, scraped, burnished and treated are now ready for a little design work ... which is going slowly ... as it's all experimenting as I go. This is the third piece and I'm beginning to pick up a little steam and confidence that I'm finally hitting a zone of how I want the piece to look before it gets it's first firing (bisque) where it will then await the final pit firing. 

A piece is never done until it's finally fired. So much can still happen. Until then this all just playing around and at the same time trying to keep the Grim Reaper of Pottery away until you get them out of the final flame.
