Sugar Bowl Redux
Ok, one maxim this particular potter lives by is 'close enough'. Here is the finished replacement sugar bowl for Sharon Arts, (see broken one a couple posts below if you are lost), and next to it is a body for a second one. The one I just finished looks a little fatter than the one it replaces, but so what. As you can see, I threw a balloon, which is sometimes stronger when you have a lot of altering to do, cut a top opening, hacked at the sides and bottom, whacked it a bit, added lid with ring and 2 handles: done. The 2nd one is not pictured finished yet, but has an elephant on top now and slightly different handles, and I will post pics after the glaze firing in a few days.
