How to make a bowl
The images show the process of making a bowl. At first I wedge the clay and throw the bowl on the wheel.
The following day, when the bowl has dried, I turn it. That involves making the footring on the bowl. At this point, the clay is leatherhard. The next thing is softening it with water again, before I stretch the bowl to shape it.
When the bowl has dried out, I fire it to 1000 degrees celcius. Then I glaze the bowl and fire it again, this time to 1280 degrees celcius.
