the journey of an "accidental" creation

Because of the nature of my "accidental work", I decided to do a photo journal of a piece from it's mere beginnings as a ball of clay to the finished glazed piece.  Remember that this creation is truly a one of a kind, never to come even close to recreating the piece again. 
step 1: ball of clay

step 2: opening of the ball of clay to form a bowl 

step 3: losing control of the clay allowing the wheel to do it's best

step 4: the "accidental" piece dried

step 5: the "accidental" piece following the bisque firing

step 6: the bisqued piece glazed    
step 7: the glazed piece fired

You be the judge.  I chose to glaze it in a blue because of all the wave-like designs in the lip and outside edges of the bowl. 
stay tuned for the photos which will be posted sometime after Oct. 28th.
Feel free to email me if you have any comments about my entries.
Thanks for following the "accidental" potter.

  1. Looking forward to a journal of art not totally controlled.
