Began with 12-15lbs of Cassius Basaltic clay
Form to a 16" bowl with no bottom, then was bagged to let the walls firm up enough to be handled and shaped
A batch of papreclay was mixed up to make the bottom and feet
4 days later it is dry enough to shape into an oval, it is now 18.5" in diameter
Paperclay was kneaded, wedged and rolled out to a 1/4" thickness. Then cut to size to fit into the bowl. I apply the bottom of the pot inside so no seams are seen from the out side of the pot and not to disturb the cracked textured outer surface.
Bottom is blended with the walls.
Ready to be bagged again to equalize moisture content and firm up enough to flip over to apply feet.
