This is wonderful! I appreciate your sharing your design process with us...drawing, then mold, then item. There are lots of ways to get to the final product, and I think it's very helpful when you let us know how you got there.
I like the incised lines very much, they give it a primitive/sophisticated feel. And I really admire the ingenious way you made the bail. Bravo! Congrats on doing a successful firing with the copper clay..you were a pioneer in the class!
Thank you for your generous and insightful instruction!
