I’m not sure. I was working on clay, some months back, with a couple of friends, and showing them various ways to do things. I made a couple of bowls by using an existing plastic bowl as my template – remember, I hand-build, I don’t use the wheel.
Now, I had a couple of bowls. Well, that was great, but I didn’t want any bowls. So I put a couple of little figures in them. Look here, a cat in a bowl.
The bowl won’t hold water because I put a couple of holes in it, so that I could demonstrate my hole-making tool. Well, everyone knows that cats don’t like water.
Next, I made this little guy and set him on an island.
I could put a little teeny bit of water in this bowl and he could dangle his feet in it. I am sure he would like that, especially if it were a hot day.
Well, that’s it. Bowl-making and where it leads. If you are me.
