Not all my creations are cracked

Got this request for a soft cornered rectangle with studs.Told the guy I've never done one but would give it a try and if you like the finished product you can purchase, no obligation. One thing I found out about this style of pottery takes a long time! Not to make but drying. Since it is altered from its round shape it has to be dried extremely slow so pieces do not pull apart. All in all I happy with it and have learned from the process and some things I'll change for the next, the customer wants a square to match. Anyway, this is heading to Texas by the end of the week.

Keith,
It is a great job you did here! Your technique is really well represented and I look forward to the second piece...
Keep it up bro!

How do you do the studs? Would love to see how the second one came out!
