Pit-fire in progress piece
1. I am using coiling to create this piece. Coiling is done by rolling clay into cylindrical strips and added on top of a circular base and smoothed together.
2. It is difficult to make the coils even which makes the piece uneven and it has also been difficult to get the piece to the size I originally had planned. I have been successful with the piece as it has gone out the amount I originall planned for.
3. I plan to make the piece even all around and then smooth it with a spoon to get ready for the pit fire. My design has changed as the size of my base created a piece that was larger than I planned for so I decided to make my piece the bottom half of my original plan.
