part two!



So, the vase below looked mug-like, and so it is. This video shows me adding the handle, finished product is below!
Not sure why I make all those funny faces, but I SPEAK, as requested. I have a quiet voice.

Much, much fun to watch you in action, Gary. You make it all look so simple and easy. What I'd really love to see is you starting the lump of clay before any shaping begins. I remember my troubles learning to get it centered so it didn't wobble. ML

Oh yes, ML, we shall show that. It is not the most exciting looking stage to film, though, you see?
