Tweedledee & Tweedledum

That’s what I’m calling my latest cream & sugar set. Don’t they just look like those dumpty twins?

These two are handbuilt instead of wheelthrown, not something I normally do. I do like the very organic forms you can get with handbuilding, but it takes so long and I am not a patient person. Thank goodness for a class that challenges me to step away from what I normally do, or I’d never have ventured here.

I’m glad I made them a little tray to nestle in, I think it makes them a more cohesive set.

These are still greenware (just dried clay), which means anything can happen between here and a finished, fired product. I’ll be on pins and needles til I get them back to the studio and onto the kiln shelf.
