The 52 Form Project
What is it?
My 52 Form Project is devised to help me stretch my creative muscles, explore new forms, or finally get to making forms I have been wanting to try for a long time. I am planning to make a new or modified form for every week of this year.
How can you help?
Your input on the forms, their shape, decoration, appeal, and function would be greatly appreciated. Some forms, if they seem like they may do well in the market, may become a part of my regular production.
Sorry for the delay in getting this post out for last week's form. I wanted to wait because I was able to tuck a few of this form into the recent kiln firing. I was very excited about their results and waited to post and share!
|Wet the bat|
|Slide the second bowl into the first bowl|
Leach puts a strap handle over the top of the piece, but I went for a different approach.
|Bowls together with pulled wall|
|Pulled walls like a pitcher lip|
|Feather cut out|
|Smooth edges with fingers|
|Squeezing the sides to level the bowls|
Where that didn't work out to my liking, I fluted the edge, also like turning a pitcher lip over, and created a decorative edge on the bowls.
|Row of bowls|
|Smaller double bowls or the double-dipper condiment dish!|
|I stamped the front side of the bowls with "Liberty Stoneware"|
