clay day

Building new bowl to replace the one damaged by plumber. I use fabric rather than paper under everything I hand build, makes it much easier to move the pieces around and doesn't stick. Much better when lifting slabs too.

Favorite tools: a hammer shaft and a very useful thing I have no idea what it's really for. Did I once find it in a Hungarian flea market, while staying in Kecskémet studio? I use them to gently tap the outside to find the right line, while supporting from the inside. Line never quite straight, but strong.

Also, drilled 150 holes in leaves for new ceramic garland, love the cordless drilling machine.

Bad photo quality, sorry. Teenager needs digital camera for film project at school, leaves me with the cell phone camera this week.
