The last day of summer saw me courageously throwing not just a cylinder but a bottle shape. Last time I tried anything As technical as this on the wheel was at college! I made a load of mistakes including not watching Simon Leach’s videos to refresh and refine my memory and technique. Having said that I really enjoyed myself and each bottle I made was better than the one before. I have since sliced down the middle of each bottle; the ultimate potter’s acid test, are the sides and base of uniform thickness? Hmm! I need another fine summer’s day!
