Can you tell I started off with no plan whatsoever? I eventually dial down my plans and sometimes it works out. So that's what I did with this project. I ended up with little bowls and not that gigantic vase I was dreaming of making. I barely was able to make a little bowl-geesh.
I actually like my little bowls better, mainly because they were easier to make and they didn't require me to throw the 2 lb block of clay across the room. But also because they make cute little gifts.
