technical tuesday with @floriangadsby


"Faceting the bowls posted yesterday. I'll quickly trim the outsides to remove any throwing rings, these have a tendency to throw off the spokeshave, the wooden tool I'm using with a sharp blade in the middle and make my cuts less consistent. The difficulty with these is catching them just at the right moment in terms of dryness, they need to be just on the harder side of leather hard. Once these have been faceted I'll score and slip a lug handle onto one side. I've found this particular piece quite challenging, the faceting process can be really irritating as one wrong cut can wreck the pot." #pottery #ceramics #ceramic #clay #liveauthentic #craft #craftsmanship #handmade
