One very thick walled vessel which was too solid for the kiln and was a struggle to gouge out. Wendy suggested I slice it into two halves, gouge and then rejoin. My automatic reaction was to slice it from the top down, however, advice from W was to undercut it from the bottom to form a clean cut.
As the two halves came apart, a whole new imagery came to the fore. Where I had added the texture, it created the perfect skyline for a mountain range. The craggyness looked more, well, craggy and thoughts of caves and sea cliffs sprang into my mind.....hmm I wonder where this will take me?
