Yesterday I finished the trimming for a commissioned order: 4 lunch plates, 2 mugs, 6 bowls. I had fun creating this order. I think I enjoyed it because the bowl is not your everyday bowl. It is more of a petite rice bowl. I just love its silhouette and the little foot it sits on.
When I was trimming these bowls, I used calipers to measure the diameter of the foot of the bowl so that each bowl will look close to identical from one to the next.
When I head to the studio in a few minutes, I will be opening up my fourth test glaze fire. I am really praying for lots of crystals and a sign that the kiln is finally good to go with the glitches all worked out! I could really use a break here!
