I'm not sure that clay is for me, but if it is, I'd rather use the porcelain clay that we use with Katie Almond as I find it so much easier to work.
We used moulds to build our bowls in. I cut some hearts and began to build it up. I've just realised that I didn't take a photo of mum's bowl - I would have been able to show you what a coiled bowl looks like (it's not just one long "sausage" that coils round, it's small coils stuck together).
As each part was built in, It was important to ensure the inside joins were all nicely blended in, to give the bowl some strength.
I added in some smaller hearts, I think I'd cut them out of the middles of the bigger ones, but I don't quite remember.
Turning the bowl out of the mould was nerve wracking! It could have easily have collapsed...
A bit of painting - we couldn't do much as we weren't able to dry it out between coats, it would have cracked. This is what I find off-putting about this kind of clay. It's actually really fragile.
I painted my heart bowl in the same bluey-green I used for my heart windchimes - very predictable!
And here it is all fired! It's about 6" in diameter, and maybe 3" high.
I can't really think of much more to say about it, but I have some more photos, so you'll just have to look at them!
