Just took my first sake set out of the kiln. Pretty happy with how it looks and feels, I just need to start drinking sake now!! No, actually it is made for a friend, however, they only asked for some sake cups but I got carried away! If she doesn’t want the set I will just make her some more cups, as I don’t want to break the set up.
I don’t know what happened today, but all the cups I made have turned ‘man sized’. As I was throwing them I thought ‘ these seem big?’ I haven’t made cups for a while, so I thought it was just my mind playing tricks. But after turning them and adding handles, I can see that I may have weighed up my clay wrong…..Pictured is one of todays cups with a previously made cup. Hopefully they will shrink a bit when fired!!?
