New Tea bowl Form
I have been experimenting with this new tea bowl form where I split the wall in half with a bow wire while the pot slowly turns on the wheel. By weaving my hand back-and-forth in a tight arc, a ripple effect emerges from where the wall is split. The small white area near the top is inlaid porcelain, which was meant to look like veins of quartz, but I didn't embed the porcelain deep enough, so most of it was lost. Next time I try this, I'll make sure the inlay goes deeper into the clay before splitting the wall.
