Sake Set

I just got home from visiting Utah State University and Norther Arizona University. Dan and John at USU and Jason at NAU were all really helpful and kind. Thank you all for everything and it will be very hard to decide which school I would like to attend.
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.

  1. The texture is cool but I don't really think the cups fit with the pitcher very well. the cups are very straight and the pitcher is very curvy. I will probably look better in glaze though
