I'm making a conscious effort to throw larger pots at the moment, and doing it with much softer, wetter clay than normal. It's been alot easier than I expected, but I think the intense heat we've been experiencing really helps in keeping the clay upright. It could be a very different story on a damp, cold autumn day!
The height of this jar is only 8.5 inches, but to me it looks alot taller:
A fairly large tea bowl, about 6 inches wide:
And a rather "wabi sabi" chawan:
I'm fairly pleased with the form of this bowl but not entirely sure I like the curves of the rim. The footring or "koudai" (as it's called in Japan) was hand carved.
