A Big Mistake!

A Big Mistake!

It started out ok, but it soon turned into a big mistake!

The bowl that I was throwing was looking good! But then.. It started to skip? So I grabbed a big wooden rib. The faster the wheel turned the more wobbly the bowl got. The sides were straight. But the rim was going around like that ‘big wave ride in the playground at my school. (it would be totally unacceptable these days!!)

So I decided to ‘alter’ the rim! ‘alter’ is code (for me, sometimes) for saving a pot!

Here’s the result!
Can’t wait to glaze it!!
Maybe it wasn’t a mistake after all!
Just creativity at work.
What’s that Cheryl Crow song? “My favorite mistake” – this may turn out to be one of my favorite mistakes!
Oh…and don’t make the mistake of missing out on the other blogs at Mud Colony!

    Can you glaze it with red? I think that the rim is different, but cool! It would look amazing with some red on the outer rim and maybe a different colour down into the rest if the bowl. Shaded into the red!! It will be your favorite mistake!!

    Hmmmm…hadn’t thought of red! I was thinking subtle blues. But… I’ll give it some thought?!

    My wobbly bowls never look good enough to save! I actually love it! It’s perfectly imperfect! Can’t wait to see it glazed!

What do you think?
