Fresh off the wheel

I was playing around with some bigger forms today and they look so juicy fresh off the wheel.

I used the webbing between my fingers to alter the rim on these large bowls while on the wheel and then I've thrown through it slightly and included some texture from a wooden tool.  I beveled the base with an arrow head tool and then squished the base gently with my hands to extenuate the movement in the rim.  Jem's not convinced but I love the moment, there's something lively and soft about them.

The ovoid was far more controlled but just as much fun!
