throwing bowls

One of the assignments for my tableware class at RISD is for the students throw a bunch of bowls, hopefully coming up with a shape to make a mold from. The assignment gave me an opportunity to sit down at the wheel, and throw for a few hours. It’s been years since I have thrown, and it took me a while to get my groove back. The result is a collection of blue bowls, all have a different matte glaze on the outside. And a few shapes I even want to make a mould from and cast in porcelain.
