holy cats! LE BIG POT
(Gary Rith and a big vase)
I was sorta thinking to myself yesterday 'does size matter? how BIG can you GO?'. So I took a BIG ball of clay and made a BIG pot which I just finished. I usually make small pieces, but you know, you wanna challenge yourself sometimes.
The wife quite wisely asks 'will it fit in your kiln?'. Yes. The big kiln. Barely. It won't fit into my glaze buckets so I gotta do some thinking......
(I KNOW I KNOW all my macho potter friends out there are like 'HA! Gary, that's peanuts, I've made bigger'. But I havn't.)
