Here is my latest coil pot. If you haven’t tried this before, give it a go!
You can either roll the coils out by hand (or if you are really serious you can get a coil extruder, which I would love to buy in my next life) or get a tool that has a loop on the end and push the tool through a slab of clay which provides you with the coil. I used another small bowl to help provide the shape. Pop some plastic in your mould bowl so your coils do not stick to the mould bowl. When layering your coils inside your mould bowl ensure you apply a little water between the coils to help the clay join. Then smooth over a little on the inside (this leaves the coil look on the outside of your new bowl). This example is stoneware fired. I have no idea what the glazes are as I applied a bunch of different left over glazes lying around. Very slack I know!
Don’t make it look perfect. Perfection is really quite boring and predictable I say! What do you think?
