Ceramics Pottery Bowl

This Ceramics Pottery Bowl is one of my favourites. If you want to know how to make pottery, this is a great project. It is a bowl made from making a pattern from coils in a mold. As it is hard to explain I am going to go straight in to the project.

Grow the pot to fit in to the mold. Tip: when placing the coils in mold overlap slightly, press gently but firmly. Make sure that the clay joins. Do not press to hard and loose coil shape qualities.
