Day twenty of #marchmeetthemaker is tools and materials.
I use a porcelain clay as I love the whiteness it gives me. It's not the easiest of clays and can be a bit temperamental, but I like a challenge! I weigh out the clay before throwing using my granny's old scales. I think she would be pleased they are still being used, although they don't look as smart as when she used them when making saffron buns! I was adding handles to some pieces and the little twisted wire is something I use sometimes if I extrude the handles. It's a handy little thing I was shown by Richard Phethean. Today I'm going to carve some pots and will be using the little metal carving tools. They leave a beautifully clean mark. x
