Here's one of my latest handbuilt ceramic projects that I made at my ceramics class just down the street. Though I would at some point love to learn how to use the wheel, for the moment I'm quite content exploring the world of hand building.
These cups were made using the slab technique, and the designs were stamped with wooden printing stamps from India. I choose to glaze the pieces with clear shiny glaze, to take advantage of the gorgeous natural speckled quality of this particular clay. I'll have to admit, the rolled lip was a consequence of using a slap that was just a bit too thin at the edge.....still very new at this, but loving it!
