Hey Frodo, How Big is that big Jug, as in is it taller than a tall thing, and whats that in inches.
hello, i love your blog. i am studying pottery in korea and your pots really inspire me. i have been working on your tall jug form lately and have a question. the rings at the top/neck of your jugs look like they are thrown as a part of the initial ball of clay, not added and thrown later. is that correct? they are big rings, i have the darndest time trying to squeeze them out of my neck. do you have a special tool? thanks for your blog, i really enjoy it.- andy
Hi AndyThanks for your words, they put a smile on my face when I read them this morning, it's good to know that you find my ramblings useful. Sometimes the necks are thrown on and sometimes they're not. I always used to struggle when it came to decorating, as to where to start the deco and as to whether it should be on the neck. I had a good look at some old pots and realised that the ribbing in the neck was decoration enough. I don't use a tool, just fingers. It's always the last bit of the pot that I work on, the neck and the rim - I'll try and get a bit of video together if I can. Cheers
Hi doug, wow, a video of the neck deco would be amazing. i have tried a few techniques to get those thick rings on the necks of my jugs, but alas- they are quite small. but practice makes perfect i guess. it hink you are right, the ribbing in the neck is the best decoration. simple and powerful they add to the whole pot. thanks. andy
