the raw and the finished
(raw, just thrown wet pots, and then the next day one of them finished, plus a disgraceful looking potter with a NEW MUG he just gave himself)
Tink's weekly photo challenge is raw and finished. The missus picked 22 dollars worth of strawberries last Saturday for jam and I was remembering that customers in summer might want berry bowls.
I think berry bowls are a little stupid, because I am an anarcho-punk and I furnish my kitchen with pots that have pigs and elephants on them.
But the point is, I do make a cute berry bowl, with either strawberries or blueberries or even apples or grapes on the side. SEE WAY ABOVE for a totally finished and glazed blueberry bowl. So, a berry bowl is a serving bowl with holes in the bottom and a small dish to set it upon. This way, you wash the berries and just set the whole thing on the table.
This morning I couldn't decide to make this one a blueberry OR strawberry berry bowl and so I put both on there.
