I'm sick and tired of these bowls, and I'm just on the other side of the halfway point. I threw 10 platter sections today, and then I attempted to throw a large bulbous pot, but it flopped. The clay was too soft.
On a more positive note, I got a set of new tools the other day in the mail. I'd long ago bought this vegetable peeler somewhere, and it's come in handy for a number of things that need trimming, off the wheel. I've been using it during the foot-soaking project to trim the edges of the two pieces so they fit well. The one I've been using is wearing out, so I finally found them online. I ordered three for $10 plus $5 shipping.
