16 Apr learning from the Onggi tradition
My first onggi pot was a challenge it working with the materials at this size. My kiln limitations were set at 26 inches height, but still the weight of the pot wet, carrying it back and forth from the damp room made the work hard, as well as me figuring out how to keep so much clay standing and moving up. This pot taught me a lot about drying the clay as i built the shape up. I’m still trying to make my form thinner while I keep it raising and moving through curves.
