Back to the point of this post. When I was visiting NAU I was lucky enough to get to watch Jason give a demo in one of his ceramics classes. Among other techniques Jason made a bowl that he textured the outside of with a rope. I had seen this texture before but never knew exactly how it was done.
I recently received a commission for a sake set and thought that this texture would be appropriate for the form. At first I was skeptical about this form but found through making it that I actually liked it a lot. I like the modest scale and the opportunities for different surfaces throughout the form. I had a lot of fun making these and hope to make some similar pots in the future.
